" Hi the lady who was assisting me was beyond helpful. She went out of her way to ensure that my application was complete in time. She was friendly, she gave me advise on what to do if ever my application is unsuccessful, whihc I highly appreciated. I got all the help I needed from the Sesi ladies. From application for my course to the application for Res. I would be very much willing to engage in Sesi's projects. I love their services and how they're helping us young girls. It's a beautiful programme. Thank you very much for starting this programme. I am very grateful for the assistance."

AGYW Essay Competition

 

Sesi Fellowship and Skill Hub embarked on a journey of drafting a national report that is meant to inform about the issues that AGYW in South Africa face and recommend solutions to these specific issues. In order to collect data, we embarked on an essay competition. In which we called on AGYW across South Africa to submit an essay about the issues that impact AGYW in their own communities. We received a total of 630 essay submissions and managed to launch the report.
