POLOKWANE – Women often carry a lot of responsibility and have to sacrifice a lot in order to keep their lives and families together, which in turn leaves them with unfulfilled dreams and very little room to become anything that they want to become.

I’d also like to teach young men how to help, support and chose a woman for themselves to make sure that the next generation just gets better and better. I would like to have people skilled who can give people classes in things that will help them better their lives and I would like to do so without charging them anything. This way people will be able to support themselves and with a little luck there.
