I have my 25th birthday coming up and as a woman who understands that there are many females who are limited by basic needs or lack of employment to accessing a basic like sanitary towels, I would like to bless at least 25 women with a year's supply of sanitary towels.
This outreach has also been inspired by the fact that our government supplies free condoms yearly in a bid to normalise safe sex, sex being a choice activity and yet there are roughly +20 000 unemployed females in South Africa, who by nature are succumbed to menstrual monthlies, without the means to afford the necessary sanitories. As a working woman, I understand the daily pressure our lives come with, where we're expected to remain calm, patient and present at all times, being able to relieve a natural stress that women have no control over would be the most rewarding and precious gift I could ask for.
To me, women empowerment means accepting and allowing women who are on the outskirts of the decision-making process into it; it means giving every woman an opportunity to become the best version of themselves, starting with eliminating or relieving burdens and struggles that women have no control over.
I am taking a stance to seek out the 25 females who will benefit from this campaign that I've named WINGED WOMEN WORK, in faith to empower these young women to hope and strive for more. This, to me, summarises the core of every female, saying women could be, can do and achieve far more heights if given an opportunity. A bird can't fly without wings and I believe it's up to us with wings to help our fellow sisters fly
