Young Girls Dialogue on Women’s Month

By August 17, 2017 No Comments

On the 11th of August, in celebration of Women’s Month, The Mogalakwena Football for Hope Centre as one of the FIFA World Cup Legacy projects that actively contributes to society and the development of the community, commemorated women by bringing together girls from Grade 10-12 to have a day out with mentors and role models. As a responsible change body, the Hope Centre is committed to efforts that enable positive contributions to health, education and sports. The Mogalakwena Football for Hope and the South African Red Cross Society hosted a 100 young women’s dialogue where the young girls were treated to talks by successful women and women who have lived and survived different experiences as a tool to guide, advise and equip them with knowledge as they grow older and become women who will one day have their own careers and be women to run corporates, various establishments and households. Successful and well established young women formed part of a panel of speakers, whose aim was to motivate, capacitate and empower the girls through career guidance and take initiative in becoming powerful leaders within our communities and the country at large. The speakers which included the deputy mayor of Mogalakwena Municipality (Mrs Manamela), the Department of Social Development, Women Business owners, to name but a few, addressed the crowd on challenges faced by the youth daily and the support they need from all individuals within our communities to help them progress in life and become women they are all destined to be.
