Introducing myself and my journal: Empowering women in Informal/survivalists Business

About Me:
I am a seeker, a searcher, a traveller, a women who is always on some kind of quest. I am looking for many things throughout my life and I am much more interested in people with more respect to humanity. As a powerful and ambitious on the one hand, reliable and efficient on the other. I was a participant of ENGAGE 2011 program (Capacity Building for labour Activists and trade Union Officials), which was organized on behalf of German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. I have 12 years experience in community media and managing non-profit organizations (NPOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
Studying Gender Labour Studies (2010) and Global Economics Policies (2011) enhanced my objective of acquiring knowledge, understand, experience about labour and economical policies globally. I was committed to several youth and woman structures at my early age, which enhanced my practical experience, knowledge and leadership skills to be a complete professional media & research person and a community asset. My strongest points is the ability to work in a team, eager to learn, always speaking my mind and I am so positive that it gives most of my seniors peace of mind .

My Passions:
The best book writer, produce audio & visual documentaries and write Research papers for students.

My Challenges:
Lack of finance to finalise my research project for publishing my 1st book and documentary.

My Vision for the Future:
Publish several books, produce more documentaries and movies

My Areas of Expertise:
Marketing, Research, policy formulation and writing.

From South Africa

Acquiring an opportunity to study is a privilege towards mounting your frame of mind. I had a chance to participate both in Workers’ College and in InWent International Leadership Training in Germany – ENGAGE which unlocked my eyes and enhanced my knowledge regarding labour and economic matters furthermore through empowering our academic level and strategic plan as activists from developing countries to be able to handle socio-economic status.

I would like to focus my research on reinforcement of gender equalities and combating racism and racial discrimination globally. The question is how governments, organizations and trade unions can on average reinforce gender socialization from the grassroots level? It is acknowledged that workplace inequality has been a burning issue in all nations globally. For an example in South Africa particularly women and disabled people still find themselves as target groups and they are virtually invisible. They are victims of inequalities, both socially and economically, because they occupy subordinates positions in comparison to men (Agent groups) on almost every dimension of socio-economic statuses such as education, occupation and income. According to United Nation Women (UNW)’ objective that; gender equality is a fundamental human right and essential condition for achieving democracy worldwide and Africa needs strong academic women to strengthen the immature democratic states. I believe that acquiring labour and economic qualifications is the key to unlock all influential seats for women.

My past and current responsibilities in National African Federated Chamber of Commerce (NAFCOC) leadership since its establishment in 1964 supported the argument that women are occupying subordinates positions in comparison to men. When we track NAFCOC’ historic Presidents from 1964 – 2004 it clearly indicate that men occupied the presidency for four decades.
