“The difference between a broken community and a thriving one is the presence of women who are valued.” Michelle Obama
Dignifying Women is an NGO registered to work for Women by Women. We will provide unwavering support to allow women re-gain hope, faith and belief in human kindness.
We demand a cultural shift away from domestic violence. This behaviour is no longer acceptable in our society.
Dignifying Women support women in need
We work with local women’s representatives to organise awareness campaigns against domestic violence. We help to provide education and vocational skills training and additional mentoring support to gain the knowledge and tools so they can confidently establish themselves in the community and workforce.
Dignifying Women encourages women to rise up in the face of adverse circumstances, to build resilience and ignite their motivation to reach for their highest potential. We believe you don’t have to be famous to be considered extraordinary.
Every day women can achieve extraordinary things, sharing their passion and ultimately become the role model for our younger generation to be future leaders in their chosen field.
Dignifying Women aims to empower women to achieve their goals through personal growth and aspiring to achieve excellence.
