Women at an aid project working with single mothers, most have lost husbands and many were abducted and returned from the bush pregnant. Hairdressing is one skill always in demand and in a shack in the middle of the busy waterfront market young mothers learn how to make the complex arrangements of extensions and plaits, producing fantastic sculptures.
