Sibongile, the Director of Women’s Leadership and Training Programme, Underberg, KwaZulu-Natal, was able to visit us here in Devon for a few days last week.
She was visiting the UK as part of the ‘Atlantic Fellows’ program which is based here in Oxford.
Her visit has enabled us to get to know her better and to confirm to us that the programme that she will be running for the teenage girls of Centocow from September is just the type of thing we need to support.
Because she has lived in the Centocow area for most of her life Sibongile was able to give us a much deeper understanding of the issues that need addressing within the area. This will inform us in our planning and involvement with other projects for the benefit of the Centocow community.
