Making dreams a reality for ten years carrying the dreams of different individuals was a massive achievement for the founder of the organisation Women Empowerment International (Wemi), Past. Lilly Fritz. She celebrated this feat with members of the organisation at the recreation hall in Galeshewe on Saturday, 19 August. The movement prides itself on having empowered 20 people – men and women – in and around the province.According to Fritz, the organisation helps people to empower themselves through forming cooperatives.Having already launched three branches (in Kimberley), Koffiefontein and Pniel, Fritz said that they were about to open a fourth branch in Postmasburg due to popular demand.“This road of the past ten years has not been an easy one to travel,” she said.“However, I still believe that Since it was no easy road to travel over these 10 years, I have a strong believe more good things are heading our way, because hard work pays off.”Some of the organisation’s plans are still in the pipeline.“When we are allocated a piece of land, we want to take things a step further by constructing our Centre of Hope.”The centre will serve as Wemi’s head office.“Here the jobless will be empowered through various sustainable projects.” She added that Wemi members were all supported and encouraged to pursue their own dreams and initiatives.the good thing about Wemi is that everyone can pursue their own initiatives, of which the movement will show support. For Wemi’s achievement throughout the year Frits thanks various stakeholders and sponsors like the department of Economic Development, National Lottery Board, Office of the Premier, Gomo-B, Commission for Gender Equality, Milady Cambridge Food and Spar Travenna.
