Use Talent To Generate Income – Women, Girl Child Urged


Women and the girl child have been encouraged to use their talents to generate income and improve their livelihoods. This was said by Founder of Women of Works Foundation Zenzele Hirschfield during a High Tea held for women in Gumare recently.

The High tea was organised by the Women of Works Foundation, in conjunction with the Kavis Kario foundation and other organisations to empower women with skills for economic diversification through side hustles and small businesses.

Zenzele Hirschfield noted that everyone has talent and gifted, thus the need to ignite these. She added that it is important for one to know what to do with their talent and make time to share it.

She encouraged women in the Gumare community to use their talents to generate income and become independent. She emphasised the importance of collaboration among women for the betterment of their communities.

Hirschfeld called for a mindset change among women in Okavango area as they possess multi-talents that are not put to good use. She explained that the journey to success is a challenging one that needs determination and dedication to succeed.

She further urged the attendees to share the knowledge acquired from the high tea with others in the community.

Meanwhile, the Acting Nursing Chief Officer for Okavango DHMT Batho Rampana urged women give health matters their all. She explained that health includes mental, emotional and physical health thus encourages them take care of it.

She further explained that one way of taking care of their health is by drinking plenty of water as it helps in reducing risks of several illnesses which include indigestion, skin problems, kidney stones, weight loss, hair growth and an unclean body system.

She also exclaimed that menopause changes a woman’s hormones which normally forces them to have a change of behavior. She said there is loss of interest in sexual activities and aggressiveness due to stress associated with menopause. Men were also advised to be supportive to women in society as they are the backbone of every family and community.

During the event, the collaboration donated toiletries to Okavango Junior Secondary School in Gumare. The handouts were received by the Guidance and counseling teachers who noted that they often face emergencies due to shortage of toiletries and sanitary pads , particularly for boarding girls.
