SANZAF Hosts Women’s Empowerment Programme
In commemorating women's month SANZAF Gauteng hosted a women's empowerment programme in Newlands.
The programme was attended by 50 women from Troimf, Westbury, Albertsville, Newlands, Whiteridge, Claremont, Kathrada Park, Corronationville, and Waterval.
The day's activities kicked off with a series of icebreakers and presentations by three inspiring women: Dr. Mihaad Seedat (Chiropractor), Farhana Ismail (Attorney) and Dr. Zafreen Valli (Physician).
The ladies then participated in a fitness demonstration as a pertinent reminder to take care of one's health and fitness. The participants regularly attend programmes held by the Newlands masjid, which aim to encourage women to pursue their dreams and become independent and self-sufficient.
The initiative forms part of a series of community development programmes held at the Newlands masjid.
With SANZAF's support, the masjid is able to host youth development programmes, a weekly tuition programme for high school learners, Islamic classes for adults, qurbani, fitrah distribution and various other events throughout the year.
SANZAF believes that empowering communities is critical in shaping a better future for all South Africans.
