The Big Issue #255
- 25 July to 24 August 2017
August is Women’s Month, and who can really say that their lives have not been touched by women in one way or the other?
In this issue, we highlight the contributions of women from every corner of the globe. From the female inmates in America who are rehabilitating rescued animals, to Nicola Vernon, who is a community activist in Greyton, and the inspirational Shaheema McCleod, director of the Saartjie Baartman Centre for Abused Women and Children in Manenberg. We hope you find as much inspiration in their stories as we have.
We’ve also rounded up a variety of things to see and do to help you unwind. Don’t forget to pull out our Little Issue feature and share it with your kids. We wouldn’t want your children to miss out on any of the fun.
And, what would an issue be without our valued Big Issue vendors? This month, we speak to vendors Ntobeko Makuala, Batsirai Jorofani and Mqondeni Nofatyelana, and showcase a selection of vendor art pieces, which were inspired by music.
Thank you to all those who supported The Big Issue Winter Drive. Look out for Mandela Day pictures in our next issue.
