An annual day which has a profound effect on girls, with many choosing a career based on their day in the workplace.

How we helped

In 2017, we hosted eight learners from the Kwabhekilanga Secondary School, during the 15th annual Cell C Take a Girl Child to Work Day. The learners spent the day under the mentorship of the executive team.

How to access finance for tertiary studies and how to gain work experience

How we helped

Geared up to share insights, life experiences and stories of how they overcome challenges to reach for their dreams, the Vuma team paired off and engaged with the Grade 12 learners. The interactive discussions included topics on how to access finance for tertiary studies, how to gain work experience, how to get classmates to listen to them while they’re talking, and the chances of getting a job after completing studies. After hearing touching stories, taking eager questions and sharing many laughs, Vuma gave a little extra in the form of magazines, calendars, educational brochures, lanyards and pens, and fruit packs.
