Abstract: Devcraft was set up by the South African Council of Churches (SACC) in 1974 with the aim of assisting locals in obtaining gainful employment. In the same year Morice Smithers became the manager for Johannesburg branch. He travelled throughout Southern Africa visiting and evaluating projects similar to that of Devcraft. The bulk of this collection documents interviews conducted with craft workers explaining their working conditions and the difficulties they experienced.
