Meet 30-year-old Bianca Williams from Diepkloof in Soweto, she’s the brainchild behind Khanya Africa, a children’s brand which encourages, educates and promotes the African identity of the black child.
Bianca, who is from Diepkloof in Soweto, says she grew up at a time when the ideal was to be white and western. This placed a lot of undue pressure for the young Bianca, something she didn’t want for her daughter — who the brand is named after.
Khanya Africa has a beautiful kids clothing range inspired by African prints, as well as a backpack and a children’s book titled ‘I Love Me’.
The business launched in 2016 and has been growing steadily ever since. She’s even received requests for her company to cater for boys, and they have heeded the call and will launch boys products later in 2018.
The brand offers more than just its products, it promotes consciousness and African pride among African families and villages. Bianca plans to build a business that will stand up as a fierce competitor alongside other children’s brands.
Khanya Africa is Joburg-based but has a nationwide reach, for more details visit their website www.khanyaafrica.com or visit their Instagram and Facebook page @KhanyaAfrica.
Bianca’s business truly lives up to #TheAfricanDream, remember Khanya Africa the next time you’re in the market for children’s products. Bianca you inspire us to Reach Higher!
