  • Through our Education programme : 27 activists completed the academic education foundation phase (2010). Since 2012, we have support 11 women to advance their academic education and eight have completed their degrees. Out of the eight, there are three social workers, four teachers and one educational psychology.
  • Through our Vocational skills development and training: 40 women have been trained on sewing skills and have been exposed to practical experience. Eight women have begun knitting and producing wool winter blankets.
  • Leadership development and support : 43 women leaders are part of the ongoing leadership development and support programme to date.
  • Health and HIV services: In 2018, we collaborated with three organisations to do community outreach testing and we tested 31489(15 558 (49%) males and 14 927 (47%) females). In 2020, we worked with two other organisations doing door-to-door health promotion during COVID19 in South Africa. We produced and distributed 15 000 free facemasks to needy homes.
  • Economic Development: Most of the women trained in sewing have participated in income generating projects within the organisation.
