HEAIDS Participates in the Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day
HEAIDS and Universities South Africa( USAf) participated in 2016 the Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work day . The theme “Dream , Believe , Achieve” , was the point of call for us to remind young girls that they possess the power to make their dreams come true by believing in themselves.
Learners from Abel Motsoane High school had an opportunity to spend time with Professor AC Bawa , Chief executive Officer of Universities South Africa . In his address to the girls this is what Professor Bawa said to the learners “There are things you have to do to acquire greatness. Our society has had a long tradition of great intellectuals. We have a challenge, as society, to keep that intellectual pool going. So I challenge you to think beyond becoming a certain professional, and become a new generation of intellectuals.”
Not only did the girls get exposure to the work environment at HEAIDS and USAf but they also got an opportunity to do a Self-Awareness workshop facilitated by HEAIDS Provincial Coordinator Marlize Olckers , in an activity to empower and educate them on the importance of knowing who they are and appreciating their personality traits . The HEAIDS team that hosted the learners expressed their immense satisfaction at having to share and engage with such an inspiring bevy of young girls.
