Summary

The YWOW project at Epworth in Kwazulu Natal, facilitates secondary education for up to 30 deserving disadvantaged young girls annually, like Noluthando Nzimande (URL below). It also celebrates parent-funded achievers, like Dr Zolelwa Sifumba, featured in the 2021 Commonwealth Day Royal Family Premier on BBC1, with HRH the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge.

Challenge

"South African girls are at a disadvantage in attaining quality education because of the patriarchal nature of our society. Women occupy a lower social status than men and are socialized to work in the home as mothers. This de-emphasizes the importance of receiving an education" -The Bergen Project. South Africa's high poverty levels and GBV dash the hopes of countless young girls. Committed to reach gender parity by 2030, MANY more young women MUST be part of the solution...#Together We Can !

Solution

'Teach a woman, Teach a nation' ~African proverb : Our aim is to enable young women to access a quality education..... we #Choose to Challenge. In close partnership with Epworth and participating schools, we assist up to 30 talented and deserving Young Women of Worth annually in order to: 1. Continue a 123-year legacy of educating to world-class standards, 2. Respond to society's search for women in leadership, and 3. Demonstrate that educating women is a key to societal progress.

Long-Term Impact

Diverse beneficiaries are nurtured in a distinctive mentorship program, with access to academics, sport, cultural activities and faith. As with Noluthando and Zolelwa, the ripples of such an education can be felt in small and under-resourced villages, as much as in the hallowed halls of the United Nations... from desperate rural hospitals to celebrated Royal interview platforms! 'There is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it; if only we're brave enough to be it' (Amanda Gorman).
