Around 45 women from Tafelsig and surrounds attended a special Valentine’s Day event on Wednesday.

Hosted by Mini Footsteps Kindergarten in Tafelsig, the women from the surrounding community and the grandmothers of the children who attend the ECD were treated to lunch and entertainment.

Some of the speakers included an abuse survivor and Childline.

“We have Childline here to help educate us as parents on what to do should anything happen to our children. We hear about this all the time but do we know what to do?” asks Ursula Peters, school principal.

Larochelle Muller also spoke to the women to encourage them following a life of prostitution and abuse (Read her story on page 5).

“These are the pillars of our community and we wanted to make them feel special. Some of them maybe don’t speak to each other but today they will. Sometimes they are forgotten because we live past one another and we just wanted to give thanks to them and treat them today,” says Peters­.
