About Me: 

I am Warona Maifala,I live here in a small mining town called selibe phikwe,This town needs to be empowered more especially the women who are the strength of this town.Innitially i wanted to ask the government to give me a big plot to assist these poverty striken mothers so that they work and sell from their produce,as well as having some form of education. for them to be valuable, having all confidence in life without any struggle also for them to take their children to school,without engaging in sexual relationships with older men from the mine,who cheat them by giving them money to get involved in sex, no man cant give any woman passing by an eye, they want to do what they call " test and pass " thereby spreading the virus.The ' O ICHEKE " theme has been preached.I want to see an adamant change. What makes me sad is to discover that even the young girls as young as from juniour secondary schools are treated as girl friends. Upon seeing what other girls encounter some also think thats the way to go. All the preachings have been done but the behaviour is coming out of hand. Exchange of lovers,big and small,you can really distingush who is who. I would love a situation whereby young girls finish school first ,attain her good grades then can go on with the rest in life.Women in my community need a serious empowerment.You can imagine when the government is busy preaching health among its people on the other hand same people are busy breaking rules or rather say implementations.And this has been the heart ache of our government. I appreciate what the government is doing.The provision of drugs in order to combat the scourge HIV/AIDS. I cry for the generations to come.If they find this behaviour still persisting, they is no how they cant be part of this mess.

Our Bcl mine, and all other men must love their daughters,empower to be sustained in this town.Otherwise we will have an infected HIV/AIDS generation . With records,statistics being so high, mmmmm! this is unbearable.MAY GOD OF MERCY HAVE MERCY ON SELIBE - PHIKWE PEOPLE.

My Passions: 
To see people in the small town where am living overcoming poverty and HIV & AIDS PANDAMIC.People must stick to their partners all the time.And it looks this town across the world has been named the worst in ,statistics are high, you rearly find a negativ
My Challenges: 
There is too much drinking of beer,there are no taboos,men go for younger girls,wifes are left in thier homes for other ladies, its all mixed people want to live the way they want yet there is poverty
My Vision for the Future: 
THESE PEOLPLE MUST GO FOR CHANGE - WHICH is attained by self discipline
My Areas of Expertise: 
Teacher,councellor,preacher
