Nomthandazo Sibozo first developed a love for community development when she was introduced to a project managed by the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC) focused on gender-based violence. She currently works on multiple programs at the Ikamva Labantwana Bethu organization, but she is especially passionate about the girls’ programs. Due to the increased number of cases of gender-based violence in local communities, the girls-only life skills program was created to empower girls and create a safe space for education and expression.
Girls can use this program to confront any pressing forms of abuse that they face in their homes, schools, or community. They are partnered with local female coaches who guide them and provide them with the support they need.
