A Heartfelt Thank You!

A Heartfelt Thank You!

We wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our fervent followers! Womandla has had such an incredible year and would like to thank you all for the love and support in 2017.


This year our numbers grew from 2446 to 2798 followers, just a short margin from our target.

We rebranded our logo to represent the meaning of Womandla. The fist, representing power and strength, and the colour lilac was used to bring a feminine element to the look.

We had the privilege to host Forbes International Business Coach, Tamiko Cuellar, for an e-Workshop on an online conferencing platform. She will be in Cape Town, South Africa in April 2018 to deliver a half day masterclass for businesswomen. More details to follow.

Our editor, Sam Gqomo, was invited to the United Nations for a Humanitarian Leadership Symposium. She represented Womandla in support of the Sustainable Development Goal 5 (Gender Equality and Women Empowerment).

In effort to increase our online presence, we joined Facebook and Instagram. Thank you for all the follows and shares. We were also featured in the Entrepreneur’s Magazine, where our editor spoke of the objectives and vision of Womandla.

So many women have approached us with their stories and yearning to promote the work they are doing in the women community at large. Thank you for engaging and collaborating with us. Let’s continue to do more and share more!

In 2018, you can look forward to more inspiring content, women’s health e-workshops, a Womandla High Tea in Johannesburg, South Africa and Breakfast in Port Elizabeth. We also hope to register Womandla as a social enterprise, and will take any help you may have to offer.

We are so excited to bring about positive change in women’s lives and join forces with others around the African Diaspora and the globe!

Have a wonderful holiday!


Leave no one behind – 16 Days of Activism

Leave no one behind – 16 Days of Activism

From 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign is a time to galvanize action to end violence against women and girls around the world. The international campaign originated from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute coordinated by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991.


This year, Womandla supports the UNiTE Campaign that marks the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence under the overarching theme, “Leave No One Behind: End Violence against Women and Girls”— reflecting the core principle of the transformative 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Share your photos, messages and videos showing how you support this cause at facebook.com/womandlaonline and twitter.com using #WomandlaToTheWorld and #16days.
