Lockdown has taken a lot away from South Africa in terms of jobs and the economy but what it has given people time to pursue other projects.
Mashudu Modau (@Mashstartup) started a thread on Twitter where he asked people to share what they had built, designed or created during lockdown.
"Can we make a thread of things we built, designed or created during lockdown?"
He started it off with a platform he developed where entrepreneurs could access resources for starting and growing their businesses.
Soon the thread had over hundreds of retweets and comments from social media users:
"Started delivering my artwork nationally. Beaded wall art by SereMhani Creations. For orders or queries contact us at."
"I got @SymphoniseC registered as an accredited training provider, created their new website and developed two e-learning courses, on top of those already delivered as virtual classes."
"@lamoola_app Beauty Treatments at your doorstep with one click. Digitizing the informal sector of small business in beauty industry."
