EThekwini Girls Rock programme celebrates success

THE CITY has reaffirmed its commitment to continue to inspire and encourage as many young women as possible to reach for new heights and better their lives. This was the message from the Arts and Living Culture Department who are the custodians of the City’s Girls Rock empowerment programme.

The message was conveyed recently during a year-end award ceremony for the girls. It emerged during the ceremony that the programme helped mentor 50 girls from different schools across the City in 2018. The City also sought the assistance of influential and successful women in different career fields to be mentors to the girls. On the day of the event, the women handed over certificates and gifts to the girls who had completed the programme.

Arts and Living Culture Public Relations Marketing Officer Phumelele Myeza said the Girls Rock programme was launched early last year. During this short period, she said the girls had been mentored and given tasks to help them become more confident and to work as a team. “The tasks given throughout the year were aimed at preparing them to be future leaders in any sphere in the work environment. This initiative contributes creatively to women empowerment,” she said.

Myeza said the programme would continue this year. “The programme will this year be packed with lots of activities. We will not only look at career goals, but how we can assist the girls with their academic progress,” she said
