ROTARY district governor Tom McGhee of District 9370 visited Mother of Peace (MoP) on Wednesday, 27 January to view a number of projects the Rotary Club of Amanzimtoti is running at MoP. Projects include a chicken and hen-laying project, an early childhood development project and a skills development project.

“This is the second year that we are running a skills development project at Mother of Peace. The idea behind the project is to provide a workshop on how to do pedicures and manicures so the women who have completed their schooling can find employment at a beauty salon or start her own mobile business,” said Sunflower Sh’zen Spa owner and rotary member Aneska Dupont.

Rotary has been involved with MoP since its inception when the organisation’s late PDG Strong negotiated the purchase of land by Community Chest from Illovo Sugar.

“With the Local Hero award from Nedbank we trained four women last year.
“One of the women managed to pay for her university fees for the year with money earned by doing manicures and pedicures. I also organise spa days for the women,” Du Pont said.

This year MoP received a Rotary district grant and trained two women - Thabile Cele and Ntokhoza Gumbi - from MoP.

Dupont is organising spa days for ladies at old-age homes and retirement villages, at a reduced cost. Anyone interested can contact her to make arrangements on 083 255 2588.
