Two Durban Women scoop the SA Women Givers Award!!

2017 Women’S month ended with a special celebration of women who give back to communities. The South Africa’s Women Givers Awards ceremony celebrates and honours South Africa’s women who are selflessly committed to giving back to communities, uplifting and supporting others for no reward at all.

The 2017 South African Givers Awards, held on the 29th August in partnership with the African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel, Joburg City and the Gauteng Department of Social Development recognize and honour women and women led businesses making a positive difference in different communities through giving their time, talents and skills for the wellbeing of others, therefore moving South Africa upward. The ceremony was attended by media, corporate SA as well as exclusively selected likeminded caring members of society.

Two Durban Social Entrepreneurs were amongst the 10 women bestowed awards at the prestigious and intimate ceremony held in Johannesburg at the African Pride Hotel.

‘This occasion comes at an opportune time where Government and society need women like the ones being celebrated here today to help support and develop communities. It is important to do the little that we can in our own corners to take South Africa Upwards – and it is for this reason that I dropped everything to be at this prestigious occasion for these women are very important and play a vital role in South Africa, as the leadership in Government, we applaud these special women’ said MMC Nonhlala Sifumba.

‘The women honoured at the ceremony come from different provinces, backgrounds and levels  of society. They give back and serve in different fields at a personal level as well as through the organisations they have founded or lead.

Durban Social entrepreneur, Debbie Becker received an award for empowering unemployed women by teaching them sewing and related business skills for them to make a living. She has also developed washable affordable nappies for under-privileged mothers and also mentors a school principal in Waterloo. She has since assisted in setting up a library at the school, a feeding scheme for the kids as well as refurbishing their play-ground.

Another Durban representative is Abigel Sheridan of ‘Chic Mamas Do Care’ which gives back in Durban, Cape Town and Gauteng. Abigel received the awards on behalf of her team for their long time involvement in fund raising for children’s education in rural underprivileged Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town areas – with a special focus on early childhood development, creating an opportunity for each child to grow in a safe, stimulating environment. The Chic Mama’s team created a chic and fun way of fundraising and turn clothing into educational projects especially where support is needed the most.

Bespoke baby gear, designed with the supermom in mind!

When it comes to baby brands, there are so many great companies out there producing some incredible stuff.
