In addition, over 350kg of scrap paper from VG printing material was donated as raw material for MPI handcraft skill development project. The scrap paper is recycled to produce intricate beads used to design necklaces, earrings and bracelets which the group later sells both locally and internationally to earn an income which is invested in savings, and to sustain their families.
