Mentorship Programme Activated!

We are so excited to launch our Mentorship Programme this year!

wommmmmm

Last year, we went on a search for passionate and successful women to mentor bright girls in the Langa community of Cape Town. Of the masses that took a keen interest, we decided on 15 ladies in Cape Town who will create and pilot our mentorship programme.

The response from the chosen High School learners and their parents, has been overwhelming! We will expose the young girls to various careers and vocations, assist in subject choice and support them as best as we can on their life journey.

We look forward to actioning our vision and mission which is to equip, inform and empower women in the African diaspora.
