The African Women Development NPO had an empowerment talk at the Drommadaries Primary School located in Reiger Park on Friday, 13 May 2016, with the objective to empower and motivate the school students to reach for success and to work hard in school.
The African Women Development (NPO) is a newly formed and registered organisation which its core function is to help develop women and young girls/boys in the community.
Co-Founders of African Women Development, Joan West and Sebenzile Sambo aim to empower and motivate women by teaching them different skills such as knitting, jewellery design, singing and dancing, catering/ cooking lessons, gardening, visit orphanages and old age homes. They also aim to organise and host different events and to promote healthy living.
“We as the African Women Development believe that it is time for the youth to explore themselves in whatever talent they have and to unleash their full potential”, said Sambo.
The day at Drommadaris Primary School was a great success and alongside the African Women Development on the day was DJ Roto and DJ Moody. DJ Roto said that he and his crew are excited to be part of what the African Women Development is doing and still planning to achieve. He empowered the Drommadaris students to believe in themselves in every area in their lives.
