I use different platforms to educate women of their bodies and to help women understand what is available to them what their rights are and help empower them on an individual level so as to influence communities. I am also passionate about adolescent health and empowering girls from a young age. I have been involved with various projects and various organisations that involve women upliftment.
I strongly believe in the principle of “motho ke motho ka batho,” which emphasizes the interconnectedness of humanity. The journey of motherhood requires the support and involvement of the community to navigate its highs and lows, and Mamandla provides that space for each fellow to thrive.
Being a Mamandla Fellow/Alumni holds immense significance for me. It means being part of a vibrant community of inspiring individuals who share a common goal of uplifting mothers.
Being a Mamandla fellow is important to me as I am passionate about helping mothers who continue to face a triple oppression of race, class, and gender.
Through the Mamandla fellowship, I aim to create a community of support where teen moms can share their experiences, uplift one another, and realize their potential. Together, they can conquer any obstacle and embrace a future filled with hope and endless possibilities.
Frequently, the gritty, unpretty side of motherhood is overlooked. I want women to know that they have the right to question at every stage of motherhood, that they have a voice and that it deserves to be heard. The less isolated we feel, the more we can harness strength in unity and empowering each other.
I’ve experienced and learned a lot in the last few years of mothering that prompted my interest in care, social reproduction and matrescence.
To be a Mamandla Fellow to me means that, I am able to lift up the banner and stand firm on the wings of change, to be part of a transformation that enables me to embrace my uniqueness . I am able to share space and thoughts with women who are driven by the same conviction of driving towards becoming a collective voice for those misunderstood or unheard. Mamandla Fellow programme is an enabler to become, to be equipped to stand for what I needed most in crucial times in my life as a young mother.
