Former Wynberg resident Candice-Leigh Dorman wants to share her success with disadvantaged women trying to make ends meet in the dusty streets of the townships.

Dorman is a published photographer and recognised humanitarian in South Africa. She has worked with several large retailers, organisations and well-known individuals, including Truworths, Woolworths, Identity Clothing, Elle Magazine, Elizabeth Arden, Jilliana, Co Organic Clothing, Operation Smile and the artist Tretchikoff.

Dorman is currently working closely with Stillness Manor and Spa in the Constantia Valley.

Dorman has an idea of changing perceptions about female vendors in the townships and giving them dignity.

“I can only begin to imagine what could be done given more consciousness, opportunity and support during the course of a lifetime. I would also like to create a vendor trust in the name of these vendors so they can reach their dreams.

“My vision is to collect corporate sponsorships and auction my images to build and sustain a homeless shelter as I know that this is an obtainable dream.

“Negotiations with a beauty company to be the official sponsor for these female vendors are underway.”

Dorman also says Vega School is considering offering a course in interior design and dressmaking to two female vendors.

She says her work under the theme of her humanitarian efforts is being featured in a few local magazines to create awareness of the vendors, who are often forgotten and unnoticed.

“This needs to change. These vendors need to feel cared for, empowered and loved. I am also in the midst of supporting two young girls featured in my artwork.”
