Women and Beyond

Women and Beyond is a non-profit organisation which provides services to women and children  exposed to poverty. They aim to offer counseling, support and intervention to women and children affected by poverty related to societal problems such as abuse women and children living with terminal illness, the HIV/AIDS inflicted, taking care of the aged, raising orphaned, abandoned and disabled children.

We were joined in the studio by Basha Taylor who is the founder of the Organisation and Candice Conradie who is the Coordinator at Women and Beyond to talk about the project they started in 2010.

Women in general are victims of many social injustices within families, communities and school going women (children) specially as they are the prey of the rest of the world. By the time they are 18-years-old or less, they are mothers who has dropped out of school.

To educate them is very crucial that is why Women and Beyond takes time to go to the schools to talk to the young women about issues such as domestic violence, pregnancy, sanitary towels, drugs, sex, poverty, life orientation...
Through young counselor's like Candice, school-girls learn that you can be 20 or more and not have children, women can achieve greatness in life, women can go to higher study grounds as well.

They will be having a workshop on Saturday 9 March 2019 at Sophumelea School.
