Ambassadors of Change is organised a Woman2Woman summit that took place on the 18th February 2017 in Desmond Tutu Hall in
As an Organisation that hosted 5 events last year (2016) we saw the need to start the new year with this fruitful program where we are aiming to educate, share African stories, develop foundation of support from parents to young girls.
This event seeks to Empower, Inspire & Motivate Africans from disadvantaged backgrounds to better understand how to seek opportunities that will enable them to move past their current challenges.
How to solve problems they encounter on a day to day basis, how to give them an identity and boost their confidence.
Why we chose to do Woman2Woman?? : we noticed from our past events that majority of women who attends our events have always wanted a platform where they can share and assist in the growth of other women in Makhaza.
The majority of women in Makhaza are less informed about their roles as a woman in their communities even less informed on how to achieve success as a WOMAN, due to that we then invited successful women who we made them Guest Speakers at our event to come to share their life experiences & mostly how they managed to grow up in difficult situation but managed to make it in life.
We had invited Wendy Kondile(Candidate Attorney), Nyameka Mguzulo(MBL Candidate,Global Leader Activist,Businesswoman & Fundraiser), Fezekisa Makeleni (Deputy Secretary-KYDC), Xoliswa Madotyeni(Deck Officer-Maritime Studies), Phumeza Nyaba(Snr Learning Facilitator-Old Mutual), Siphelele Chirwa(Executive Leader-EducoAfrica), Adri Marais (CEO-TSiBA Education), Glaudina Loots (Director for Health Innovation-Department of Science & Technology in SA)..these are the people who came to be inspirational speakers to women who attended the event.
Moving forward : We want to encourage THOSE WOMEN to stand up & take action of how they want to live their life in a positive way and be successful, and we take this as first phase to help more than 200 women’s (YOUNG& OLD) to discover themselves and their potentials in life. We hope and believe to reveal women’s achievements from struggle.
