ON Tuesday, 28 and Wednesday, 29 July, The Robin Hood Foundation will host a conference at City Hill Church in Hillcrest entitled “Future Women of Africa”.

The conference is free for 1 000 previously disadvantaged delegates between the ages of 15 and 36 with the aim of inspiring and empowering, as well as igniting direction and excitement in their future.

“As part of our 10th anniversary celebrations, The Robin Hood Foundation wanted to do something substantial, something that could potentially change the lives of 1 000 young South African women who would not normally have the opportunity to attend a conference such as this,’’ says Kim Griffith Jones, co-ordinator of the Robin Hood Foundation.

“The conference will cover topics such as self-esteem, morale and goal-setting.

“Hygiene, etiquette, self-defence, communication skills, CV writing and customer service is also on the agenda.’’

Gcina Mhlophe, storyteller and motivational speaker, will be presenting on both days while Ndlunkulu Thandeka Mkhize, the wife of the Chief of Embo, will be speaking and opening the conference in prayer. Stylists Megan and Faye Coleman, business coach, Jackie Houston, as well as life coach, Marianne Vorster, are also included on th agenda.

Dis-Chem, and the Dis-Chem Foundation, will be sponsoring goodie bag items as well as organising a qualified nurse to speak on feminine health issues and family planning. Dis-Chem has also arranged for make-up artist, Brandon Donne, to do a demonstration. On day two, it is sponsoring an exhibition with its trained professionals conducting blood pressure testing, glucose testing, perfume sampling, massaging and more.
