HARDWORKING and dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the children in her community, Doris Majozi from iKhethelo Children’s Village was named Hirsch’s heroine of the Upper Highway area for Women’s Month.

Majozi received a R500 Hirsch’s voucher, a nail voucher from Waterfall Nail and Beauty and a cut and blow wave from Ash Blonde Salon.

Majozi, also known as Mama D, has received praise for the selfless efforts from many in her community.
There is saying, “it takes a village to raise a child”, but Majozi has raised hundreds of children on her own.

Speaking to the Fever, Ruth Mthembu of iKhethelo described Majozi as kind-hearted, strict, but loving mother that many children wish they had.

“iKhethelo, formerly known as Makaphutu, has been through various trials as a village, but through it all, Majozi remained faithful to her job.

“The community has her to thank for raising many children. Some of the children she raised in the village are now working, studying or starting their own families. She is the true definition of a woman, and deserves a lot of appreciation. iKhethelo is blessed to have her.’ said Mthembu.

Educational psychologist Tessa Burnard was announced the Women in Business of the Month.
