We considered it very important to raise both girls and boys in the manner that builds up future women and men of our society. Sacred Heart dedicated August, the women’s month to the teenage-girls. A well-designed programme for girls aimed at helping the teenage girls to believe in themselves by boosting their self-esteem and face their futures with courage.
The Director of the Home, Sr Tholakele Cele, Sr Cosma and Ms Rose Cele conducted the programme with 14 Sacred Heart teennage-girls. The girls found the programme very empowering, inspiring and motivating. During the sessions, girls presented the challenges they are facing and together they looked at possibilities to change stumbling blocks to stepping stones heading towards their futures. The girls then joined the Women Empowerment Seminar hosted by the Home on 31 August 2013.
