Children in Du Noon and Joe Slovo in Milnerton heaped praises on Dr Faye Nqoloba , Dr Fay Nqoloba, the founder of Warrior Women and Young Warriors during a fund-raising gala dinner held in Cape Town recently.

Launched in 2014, Warrior Woman is a Cape Town based Non-Profit Organization (NPO) which aims to address the ongoing struggle against women abuse, gender based violence, the rising of numbers of divorces- which leads to broken families, which is the core of society- youth unemployment, teen pregnancies, prison overflow, early detection of substance abuse that has become a norm in the country.

Abongile Mgoqi, one of the children said she did not know that being part of the Young Warriors was going to make such an impact in her life when it was first introduced to her.

The event also saw the children and young adults getting awards for participating in workshops which were held in the course of the year and other activities.

In her response, Dr Nqoloba said she was happy to see the organisation which she started without resources reaching great heights.

An ordained minister who among others, describes herself as a healer of wounded souls and touching the souls of and hearts of nations, has been involved in the church for 33 years.

“I have been through the rain trying to make it(organisation) what it is today without a cent. It(the organisation) is about giving hope to people.

According a brochure distributed during the function, Nqoloba obtained a Doctorate of Divinity from an institution called ECUI in 2014.

She said: “Why are we pushing each other away. We need to unite. Children smoke dagga together and they do all sorts of bad things together. I have approached a number of churches for assistance, but they were not willing to help,” she said.

Nthabeleng Mbatha, one of the children, praised Nqoloba for instilling hope in her.

“There are a lot of bad things that happened in my life, but I have to move-on.

I cannot let my past to rule over me. You have had a great impact in my life.”

Abongile Mgoqi added: “I did not know it was going to change my life for better when I joined. I took it lightly. We are being abused in our homes. If your mother does not report your father who abuses you, stand-up and report him. I urge police to ensure that they protect the identity of those who expose perpetrators.
