HOW IT ALL STARTED: The Dirisanang Ladies Club was started in 2009 at Schoonoord, Sekhukhune in Limpopo. It is all about working together, which is why they named their club Dirisanang. They wanted a safe club where they can bond and unite as neighbours.

The ladies also wanted to help each other in the event of a funeral, a wedding, a tombstone unveiling or a birthday party. Members are between the ages of 40 and 50. While they don’t have a specific uniform, they do wear navy and white when attending events as members.

When Dirisanang members have their monthly meetings, they decide on a theme and dress accordingly.
