Khanyisa Bakeries Project: Introducing Nomfuneko from Kusile Woman Empowerment
By Karen Taylor-Vermaak - Fundraising & Marketing Director
In this update we'd like to introduce you to another remarkable woman who is driving the fight against gender based violence in her community, and who will soon be baking bread to raise funds for her CBO and her community.
Nomfuneko is from Kusile Woman Empowerment (KWP), a non-profit organisation that was established in February 2012 and is located in rural town of Sutterheim in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. She hails from Mlungisi township in Stutterheim and has managed the organsiation for 7 years. Stutterheim is in a deep rural area that is sparsely populated and under-resourced. KWP offers its services to the surrounding townships and villages as there are very few social support services available from the State.
KWP's mission is to address the extremely high rates of gender-based violence and violence against women and girls in the area through
community mobilisation and engagement about gender issues
support for victims of domestic abuse
providing safety and support for victims
and engaging men on the issues of gender based violence.
Nomfuneka has attended a number of RDSP's capacity building workshops and mentoring sessions since 2013, including Steven Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People leadership training, which has helped her to become a stronger leader and community activist.
We are delighted to have Kusile Woman Empowerment as a beneficiary organisation of the Khanyisa Bakeries Project and look forward to procuring a mobile bakery for them in the next six months, thanks to your generous donations!
