Celebrate Life SA is having a Women Empowerment breakfast on 24th February and our Guest Speaker is Judy Sandison, an award-winning broadcast journalist and editor.
Judy has worked as a reporter, news editor, digital editor and national news editor-in-chief - pioneering new News Services and transformation in the public broadcaster. She played a role in transforming SABC Radio news from a state to a public broadcaster in our young democracy.
She is a founder member and serves on the national Council of the SA National Editors' Forum, which focuses on defending media freedom, and on projects to raise the quality of journalism in South Africa.
A gender activist, Judy has been a driving force in several women's rights organiations over the years.
Because Celebrate Life is passionate about women empowerment, we would like to challenge your company to sponsor one lady to paddle 27km across Lake Malawi from the Malawian side to the Mozambican border.
The cost of sponsorship is R50,000 and funds will go towards the rural bread-making projects in the communities. This project offers great branding opportunities, a company CSI project which can be followed and an opportunity for all staff members to be involved in the company project.
The paddle is planned for September 2017.
Canoe's will be donated in Malawi and we anticipate good media coverage for the event.
Celebrate Life holds an SED certificate to assist with your BEE status and can issue an 18A certificate for tax savings.
Please contact Celebrate Life SA if you would like to get involved.

Celebrate Life visited Zame and Lindiwe at The Womens Organisation of Savannah Park, west of Durban. Their projects in the community are so humbling and it is here that women took the initiative to grow their own vegetables to put food on the table.They sell their veggies to the community and grow anything from herbs to butternut.
We decided to donate a bread making oven to them to enable them to feed the orphans and sell to the community. The oven was installed this week and the ladies were given 3 days training to enable them to be the best bakers ever!
Celebrate Life have donated R20,000 to the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organisation for the Thula Thula Rhino Sanctuary from the proceeds of the sale of the rhino sculpture in London. Rhino poaching is at it's highest and is a national disaster. If we can make a tiny difference in saving orphaned rhinos after their parents have been poached... it is worth the effort. Every cent makes a difference."
