“I know that government doesn’t have the all solutions and that real solutions do not come from the top down. Instead, the ways to end poverty come from all of us. We are part of the solution,”- Kathleen Blanco. This quote best defines forward thinking leaders like Activator Khomotso Komape and William Chokoe who have secured a R10.000 food and sanitary towel sponsorship for disadvantaged women from their communities.

Supporting and celebrating women���s rights is a year-round responsibility, South Africa experienced unexpected unrest that came out of nowhere and shocked the country, at the same time as a major pandemic. This Women’s Month won’t be the same for the community of Moletjie�� because these two Activators have given them hope and so much positivity and motivation to keep going.

The leaders hosted a workshop on Women’s day unpacking the theme Positive Parenting in ��partnership with Save the children South Africa, together with their organisation Boys And Girls Educational foundation. Parenting is the biggest responsibility one can take up. The future of our country’s ��children are in the hands of parents. The journey is tough but rewarding as well. As we see our children grow to become sensible and responsible, we feel satisfied about a job well done. “It is not so nice seeing families struggle to make ends meet, as community leaders and champions we have pledged that we will help where we can, and we will keep knocking on doors, seeking assistance. Seeing our plea come to fruition and having deliver these food parcels to disadvantaged families really warms up my heart, I have given hope to not one family but over 20 families, and I have impacted a girl child with sanitary towels. We will continue to fight the stigma of poverty and be the change we want to see,” says William Chokoe.

While Activator Khomotso Komape says; “We honour them, we support them, we respect them, let us be here for them .They are our children, our sisters, ��our friends, our wives, our mothers, our grandmothers, our colleagues, our neighbours. They don’t need to prove themselves or to explain themselves to anyone. They need to be who they are – Phenomenal women. These food parcels will mean a great deal to them and the sanitary towels will aid in bringing some dignity and confidence for the girls.
