Happy 2022!

It’s safe to say we are back and ready for the year of DOUBLE!

With double the excitement mounting, we are hoping to make double the impact as we climatise to the new normal.

We cannot thank our community, supporters, and donors (shoutout DGMT) enough for your generosity and involvement in the foundation in 2021.

A special word of thanks goes out to the Mentorship, STEAM and Entrepreneurship & Development committees who showed up in leaps and bounds by providing resources to run our programmes and events.

Some of our highlights:

MANCOSA came on board as a partner and has been instrumental in carrying out our shared values. With school shoes donated to our chosen school and venues provided nationwide, our impact can now have a wider reach. MANCOSA has also donated bursaries for women in the Womandla community and our STEAM award winners!

We also hosted our successful hybrid STEAM awards, hosted by the Editor of GQ South Africa, Molife Kumona, and keynote address by Poppy Mhlungu-Khoza, CEO of CAA. We awarded shining beacons who have shown promise and great achievement in their industry. Catch the awards here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgadEJdKeV8

The media has always had our back and have been a great voice to amplify our activism, education and vision to equip, empower and inspire women and girls (and anyone listening really) in the African Diaspora!

This year, we have so much planned across all disciplines and invite you to journey with us!

As always, we encourage you to follow our social media pages to keep up to date with what’s happening at the Womandla Foundation. Please feel free to reach out to partner, sponsor or volunteer to our cause.

Last Chance to Win Womandla Bursary: 21st Century Skills Certificate

Amidst trying financial times and increased unemployment among the youth, Womandla Foundation is proud to announce its partnership with MANCOSA to afford 20 women across Africa with the Honoris Online Academy 21st Century Skills Certificate.

Over the past year, it has become increasingly clear that the world of work demands cognitive agility and a mobile mindset – attitudes and behaviours of success. The Womandla Bursary’s 21st Century Skills Certificate will prepare the bursars to thrive and compete in automated, data and AI-driven realities. 

Womandla Foundation is a non-profit organisation which celebrates and empowers girls and  women in Africa and beyond. Womandla collaborates with various organisations to promote social innovation, access to education, community enrichments and transformation. 

“We are excited about this partnership with MANCOSA and the impact it will have on the bursary recipients” says Sam Gqomo, founding director of Womandla Foundation. 

“The 12-month programme will ensure women graduate with skills to not just be more employable, but entrepreneurial. This aligns with the Womandla objective of empowering women.”  

The Honoris 21st Century Skills Certificate online programme, valued at R3 900, covers a number of courses, some of which include behavioural intelligence, critical thinking, creativity and design thinking, communication, collaboration, coding, data analytics, and entrepreneurship.

With the deadline looming, women across Africa are encouraged to apply for this life-changing opportunity by no later than 3 April 2021. Winners will be announced on Monday, 4 April 2021. 

To apply, follow Womandla Foundation on social media, tag Womandla and motivate why you deserve the 2021 Womandla Bursary.
