Wednesday - Gender - WHEAT Fund

On today's show we spoke to Janine Fortuin she does marketing and communication at the WHEAT Fund and she is very passionate about women s rights and fighting social justice. 

WHEAT Trust is a South African Women’s Fund that promotes a culture of giving to empower grassroots women. It grants to small Community Based Organisations (CBOs) and women who can not yet access formal funding. We believe that the most effective route to community development in South African low income communities is by empowering women to lead the development process. Our priority is to grant women access to information and knowledge in order to enhance and nurture their skills. There is a need for Southern Africans to be encouraged to support local women’s initiatives and so promote and enhance the culture of giving in our countries.

Part of the interview was also to let people people know about the upcoming exciting event WHEAT is hosting named 1000 women 1 voice; 
1000 Women 1 Voice Luncheon
May 14 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
