Building Bridges programme
The Building Bridges programme is a unique employment training initiative designed for abused and young women. It takes a holistic approach to employment preparation by addressing the individuals’ physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs in the way she approaches learning and employment.
Now that I have finished my training, I'll start my business and do my level best to grow it. I now have been given the skill, I therefore can proudly say - the sky is the limit.
The programme was good and I learnt a lot about business ideas. I enjoyed it a lot. When we started sewing it was hard at first because we had to do things on our own, but I learnt a lot. I really appreciate what Ilitha Labantu did for me. Now I can make my own clothes and I can even work on my own self-realization. This training helped me learn a lot of things I never knew.
For every moment we remain silent, we conspire against our women.
