THE Daughters of Aphrodite (DOA) organisation brought in the first day of spring by celebrating and hosting a women’s function which, according to the DOA founder, was a complete success. “The function was a roaring success. Supporters came out in their glory with the Deez Foundation, KC Biscuits, family and friends as well as the AS Pillay Hall staff in attendance,” said DOA founder Kashmita Bahadur-Moodley.Moodley said that the day was all about inspiring, motivating and celebrating women and encouraging them to let their hair down. “The ladies were inspired and motivated at the event and had an absolutely wonderful afternoon just letting their hair down with a day specifically dedicated to them,” said Moodley. Moodley announced that she would be embarking on an initiative to empower women by upskilling them through various things such as sewing, knitting, craft work and administration and business cour-ses. “You cannot give from an empty cup so as women we need to make certain we are fulfilled in every way. Do not be scared to ask for what you need. If you are happy then your family and people around you will be happy,” said Moodley.
