Learners to be Empowered on Take a Girl Child to Work Day
 
Young eThekwini female learners 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.
 
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 learners during the day’s proceedings, while two female executives from the City’s successful entities, namely Stella Khumalo CEO of uShaka Marine World and Lindiwe Rakharebe CEO of Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre, will impart business skills.
