DESPITE the rain on Saturday, the Pink Couch event was well attended at Desroches Hotel in Margate.

Tessa Green of Pink Couch hosted her human rights talk, which was attended by more than 60 people.

Green said many missed out on an afternoon of inspiration, fun and thought-provoking discussions.

She said those that missed out can rest assured because the Pink Couch is on the South Coast to stay.

Guests from various platforms ensured that all aspects of human rights were discussed, with Sister Dudu Ndlovu sharing experiences with women and children whose rights have been violated.

Dr Charlene Maistry talked about puberty, teenage pregnancy and the challenges facing youth in line with the country’s Child Act. Another topic that was touched on was that of women in business.

“Mrs Songo of Songa Trading cc, shared an inspiring business story that stole the hearts of many,” said Green.

Guests were given the opportunity to ask school principal Gill Carlow questions, who discussed the tools, issues and the challenges of raising men.

Green said in the next talk show Dr Carlow will share the couch and talk about parenting in a modern society.

Green thanked Desroches Hotel for the venue, Luckys Manaba for the couch and stage set and Edmond Naidoo, Vinod Harrilal, Charles Montague for their financial sponsorships and donation drive for the benefitting charities.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors who generously donated gifts and lucky draw prizes, not forgetting our sound and music.

“The sanitary and comfort care packs drive was generously supported by all,” said Green.
