18 June 2008 – Gender

Today on Sakhisizwe we spoke to Kevin Rutter the Founder of Fathers.co.za - a website which is used as a resource centre for fathers. Their primary goal is to help fathers “become a success in the eyes of their children”. They believe in changing a “fatherlessness” society into a “fatherfull” society. Kevin explained more about the website and the seminars that they host. For more information you can visit their website at www.fathers.co.za or you can send him an e –mail to kevin@fathers.co.za

We also heard from Andrew Fulton from the Mankind Project. Through this project, men and women are empowered to live to their full potential, trusting that they will co-create the healthy solutions needed by society. They facilitate a weekend workshop titled the New Warrior Training Adventure, which is said to be a process of initiation and self-examination that is crucial to the development of a healthy and mature male self. Their training adventure begins on June 20. For more information go to www.mkp.org.za


Lastly we were joined on the line by Fezeka Dyani who is the Administrator at Iziko Lo Lwazi, a non profit organisation that provides training and work for women with a primary objective of empowering them through education and employment. Fezeka explained more about their work. For more information you can contact their offices on (021) 790 2273 or visit www.izikoll.co.za
