Women’s Month Gala Event, in support of Onkabetse Care Centre
On Saturday 24th August, Ms Phakathi was invited as a speaker at the Women’s Month Gala Event. This day was in support of Onkabetse Care Centre, based in Ekurhuleni – a centre that is closing the gap in support for orphans abandoned babies and children in need of a safe space.
Ms Phakathi shared the stage with some of our country’s bravest women, of yesteryear and today. Her topic, “Decisive Leadership – the undying spirit of victory”. It was incredibly well-received by all and motivated the women present to be bold entrepreneurs, to accept challenges as par the course, and to solve them with ingenuity and grit, in order to be successful. It was also a privilege to hear from two of our living legends – women who were instrumental in the planning and execution of the Women’s March of 1956.
