The Queendom

Main aim of the charity

I aim to help spread awareness to respect them and do my very best to make people aware and realize the true strength of the female gender. And become future visionaries and leaders. To stop isolation of women from each other. Be able to reduce poverty, reduce risk of child morality and ble to influence their future

How the employee got involved and why

The Queendom was launched in October 2018...and is already making waves. I was still a student at varsity in those days, I had all these dreams about what I wanted my life to be and all these amazing goals, but here I was not being able to get support,empowerment,drive and lack of resources and knowledge. When I looked around the community lot of young women had lost touch of themselves. I began to think if I feel this way ,there must be others who do too. With this linking, I then decided to start a "Women Empowerment Group called The Queendom". I wanted to create an intimate space where women could gather to network and share resources,inspiring each other to revive old goals, make new ones and move towards them.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I conduct workshops where we empower back the lack of confidence, and lack of independency. I share my journey , life stories and challenges I have overcome. I also participate in business mentoring and coaching each individuals.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Establish centers where we can conduct workshops and trainings. To strengthen the process of economic development of women and create a conducive environment for social change. To form self help group on the thrift and credit principles which builds self reliance and enable women to have greater access and control over resources. To increase the income levels within township women by engaging them in income generating activities and creating financial stability. To provide opportunities where they can be able to pay for their student fees, and put food on the tables, looking after their kids.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

I strongly believe that winning will be of a great impact and drive to me. All of this is done through out my effort and pocket money, willingly without any regret. I wish to see Queendom reaching towards other women from different areas, I wanna raise the voice that is is possible. Next generation will be empowered beacuse of me. Be able to publicize the network's activities and services through publications, awards recognition, exhibition and the mass media. It will also be great impact to gain access in those small community radios and touch lives. Also by improving the condition of African Women. I wish to hold hands with this movement "DHL4HER" . There is so much development I have gained from their round table discussions.
