A group of Ju/hoan Men in the Tsumkwe East were sponsored by an NGO and provided with leather and some equipment to start their own business of shoemaking, by which they will be making a living. Before getting all the materials, they were trained on how to run the business and how to make the shoes.

In the background of the picture below, you can see the sandals against the wall ready to be sold, and the pair the young man is carrying shows how their soles look.

The photograph below shows one of the men sewing some leather with the sewing machine.

In the picture below it shows the sandals that they are making using their own cultural designs. So if you want a pair they measure your feet and then make you the design you want, and when they are done making them you pay a certain amount of money before you take them.
