South Africa – Cape Town  –  Olwethu Njoloza from Girls Leading Change. Girls Leading Change has been developed to effectively involve partners from all segments of our community in collaborative work to develop our teen girls into better and more compassionate human beings, who live their lives successfully, while not becoming just another statistic. We are creating a platform where our girls will discover their talents and passions, where the potential of every girl will be ignited. We want our girls to be able to look beyond their current circumstances, to understand that there is more to life than what they are exposed to. This is a platform which seeks to inculcate the culture of the desire to achieve and to dream big, a platform which will create an inspired generation. As part of our outreach programs, during the coronavirus pandemic, we are distributing dignity packs to teens girls in underprivileged communities.
