My name is Mildred Hlatshwayo. I am based in Johannesburg North where I run an ECD centre.
It is through this centre that I have engaged with mothers from all walks of life. The group that has challenged me a lot and which am working on to see how best I can ease the burden to are the single mothers and working mothers. I have opened my doors to assist to the best of my ability through advice, counseling and offering to take care of their babies during nights, weekends and holidays.
My achievements with regards to mothers was helping one mother to overcome depression and ditch the medication and now she is her old self full of life. Being a member of Mamandla means now I can get to meet other women with whom minds put together we can change the whole perception of a mother and empower mothers so that they become self sufficient and have access to arms/means that can propel them to reach their optimum.
