Wensday-GENDER_Parkwood Women , Care and share.

I have found a new inspiration. On today's show i spoke to an inspirational women from Parkwood.Sandra Phillis is a 53 years women that runs a women empowerment support group out of her own pocket. In order for her to sustain the ladies that come for talks two days a week at her home she need to sell second hand clothes so they can at least have coffee and biscuits after each session.Ms Phillips started the support group for women last year and it has been a home for all ever since. She mentions that these women come at  her house to share their pain and hopefully find solutions to their problem , which in most cases are finance, abuse, as well as substance abuse at home.  She adds that they come together to share these issues as well as to encourage each other. What was so beautiful about the interview is that i asked the question , what inspires you to do this?  She basically had no words other than "it feels right to do this i really don't know why i do this".

However on the 27th September 2014 in Parkwood she planned an event for the women to celebrate Spring in style, she says that the event is all about these women dressing up and celebrating spring and celebrating them as women . She adds that she wants  them to feel beautiful on the day.Today is her birthday HAPPY BIRTH DAY Ms Phillips .

If you are inspired and would like to help out please call Bush Radio on 021 448 5450 or simply comment on this and i will contact you.

LEAP is a project which seeks to empower teachers from remote and under resourced schools in nine African countries with tools to improve their English listening and speaking skills, while tremendously enhancing and supporting learners’ comprehension of oral and written language. This will be achieved through quality English learning materials on micro-SD cards delivered via solar powered MP3 players popularly known as ‘Life players’.Furthermore LEAP is an initiative aimed at improving low literacy and numeracy rates consistent with the findings of the Annual National Assessments which have identified gaps.
