LIFE SKILLS CENTER
Sistahood is a club of and for girls between the ages of 13 and 18+ in Imizamo Yethu. We recently started working with +/-20 girls. This organization exists to provide moral support, motivation, inspiration and education support to young girls in the community.
Over the years Sistahood recognises that young girls & women are facing real and intense challenges, particularly in our Cape Flats and townships. Every day Sistahood helps young women and girls make better choices in life. We encourage our girls to complete their Grade 12 and study further. We motivate them to dream big and never limit themselves by providing the support they need to achieve their goals. We all want to be successful in whatever field we choose. Though without the right support and contacts that cannot happen. Sistahood will always be the supporter of girls & women within & outside of our organization.
