We were excited to officially launch Womandla last month. Our team put together such a great event which spoke of our vision, mission and objectives.
We had Vuyo Matu, MD of Voice of Africa Global Media, as our Guest Speaker. She spoke of Spiritual Intelligence being an imperative for business. She went in depth on owning our future and being responsible for the Africa we want to see.
After her enthralling speech, we had a panel discussion with accomplished ladies about opportunities for Africans in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
We are busy planning our mentorship programme for next year, and speaking to stakeholders and investors about the future of Womandla.
If you were at the event, you would know that we are in a season of birthing new things!
Thank you to Cape Town TV for covering the event.
We’re so EXCITED to officially launch the Womandla Foundation this Heritage Month.
We chose this month specifically because Womandla exists to shape the mind of the African Woman.
Our Guest Speaker will be Vuyokazi Matu, TV Presenter and the MD Voice of Africa Global Media.
We also have a panel discussion with incredibly successful powerhouses, speaking on Opportunities For African Women in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Rumbidzaishe Maisva, Womandla’s EXCO member and Quality Assurance Analyst at Open Box Software, shared her journey with young ladies as part of Women’s month.
Rumbi was recently invited as a guest speaker at the Women In ICT event held at College of Cape Town in Crawford, Cape Town.
She spoke about how her journey led her to IT and encouraged the younger girls in the audience which comprised of Grade 10-12 learners and some students from the college through her life story.
Amongst what she said to the girls was advice on how to enrich themselves by protecting their space and their time. To not allow negative energy in their space and to use their time in a way that they are enriched for the future.
She shared how her success story actually stemmed from failure. A failed module could have cost her her degree, but she turned that around to complete her degree and further her studies by doing her Honours – which fell short of a cum laude by 3%. The girls related so much to the story and reached out to her for more inspiration after her speech.
One of the young ladies even asked to interview her and she got the opportunity to ask her questions and find out more about her role in IT.
It sounds like not only the younger girls where learning from this seminar, Rumbi says she learnt so much too. The more experienced women in the field encouraged her to keep studying – acquiring international certificates and to keep hitting more milestones. Most of what they said was validation for what she is already embarking in.
Here’s to encouraging younger ladies to grow into empowered and confident women!
Our director, joined the Weekend Breakfast team on Cape Talk 567 AM to speak about the upcoming Forbes Masterclass and Womandla’s journey thus far.
