City’s social investment initiative to empower female pupils

Young eThekwini female pupils will get a rare opportunity to spend the day with municipal officials from various departments, including maritime and engineering when the city hosts the Take a Girl Child to Work Day on Friday, 26 May.

The annual social investment initiative will not only offer career guidance advice to young girls, but they will also receive much-needed life skills.

The girls will also be empowered on how to protect themselves when in danger. This comes on the backdrop of the alarming violence targeting young women across the country.

A motivational speaker will address the pupils during the day’s proceedings at City Hall, while two female executives from the city’s successful entities, Stella Khumalo, CEO of uShaka Marine World, and Lindiwe Rakharebe, CEO of Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre, will impart business skills.
