Dozens of women from the early childhood development sector underwent a month-long training programme in Mfuleni to empower them with information that will help uplift their respective societies.

The Provincial Department of Social Development and Early Childhood Development organised the training, which was attended by about 140 women from different areas in the city.

The training, which started on 01 November, touched-based on home-based-care, drug awareness programmes, health, crime and other topics, and how to deal with disabled persons and children in society, stakeholder engagement, conflict management in the society and many other topics that are set to address burning issues in communities.

The slogan for the training is “Women for Change, Rising above Adversity.”

Also involved was Simelela Centre- also called Mosaic- which provides a comprehensive 24 hour service for survivors of sexual and domestic violence in Khayelitsha.

Noncedo Jaji, 37, one of the women who attended the training, said it was good for them.

“This training is important for us, because it empowers us with skills that we need in our communities.

It will help us to make a good difference in our communities. We will be able to fight against drugs, women and children abuse and many other topics. I have gained a lot already here,” Jaji said.
