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.
My background incubated a personal philosophy of social justice which led me to seek communion in the fellowship of like-minded people that is Mamandla. Within the broad range of issues affecting motherhood and mothers’ rights, I have a particular interest in breastfeeding, the laws regulating maternity leave and early childhood development.
Being a Mamandla Fellow will allow me to network with like-minded women who are passionate about supporting mothers in communities and will enable me to grow.

Being a Mamandla fellow means that I can further my passion and get deeper with my involvement and intentions. I want to contribute to the fellowship using my experience and also by becoming a sponge and absorb as much wisdom and knowledge as possible.
