Our Call To Action : Sebenza Your Way to Financial Freedom, Girl! – You Possess The Power
to Achieve – Believe it!. Will see us collaborate with interested brands to begin the
conversation of Economic Freedom with young girls between the ages of 16 and 25-yearsold at community level.
Freedom is important because for as long as we are free we have a flame burning in us
that is our guiding compass to ensuring a better tomorrow.

and with each other.
