Dikeledi-Thokozile Foundation

Dream Pushers is a program helping women between 19 - 30 who dropped out from high school to go back to school. We interview and evaluate them to see if they're school ready. Should they not be school ready, we find counselors who will assist them to go back to school.

The Young Woman You Are Worthy program helps young women (mostly teenagers) build their confidence to not just stay in school, but to make better decisions for themselves. We believe that when young women esteem themselves better, they are able to make better decisions and face challenges.

So we equip them to accept their family situations, so that they are not cheated by older men who want to date them, prevent them from dropping out, prevent teenage pregnancy and help them become esteemed enough to make better decisions.

Finally we have a Hygiene pack that we're planning to start, which is providing all the essential hygiene packages - from roll on to pads. We aim to provide these to each girl we support on a monthly basis.
