They set out to form their own self-sponsored decorating business to get themselves out of the unemployment line.

This transformation resulted in the Special Noble Events, that they both operate after digging deep into their pockets to meet the daily challenges.

“We started by brainstorming what to invest in and we thought of decorating in events using any kind of paper and adding fabrics on some flowers. Our business is the first to specialise in using paper flowers in the decorating industry,” Boikhutso told Arts & Culture.She noted that their organisation does paper backdrops, selfie frames, framed flowers for home decoration or office and individual flowers for any event.

“We work from home in Phase 4 because we do not have enough money to rent an office,” Boikhutso said.

also stated that they used digital platforms to advertise their products, but being self-sponsored, difficulties raised their ugly heads from time to time. “Some times people will place orders for our products and then not show up for collection, which is a set back as we endure expenses of buying material and coming up with the final product,” Boikhutso said, adding that they had their first big tender in 2017.

“We aim to seek for financial assistance from the youth (ministry) or gender affairs (department) so that we would be able to employ individuals who will participate in the firm’s activities and also find an office to operate in”.

She indicated that they sell to both individuals and catering businesses depending on the customer’s themes.
