Endurocad's Young Women empowerment programme is aimed at developing, educating and empowering young women between the ages of 14 and 18 . We target high school women from communities surrounding Stellenbosch, including Kayamandi, Cloetesville, Ida's Valley, Stellenzicht, Macassar and Eersterivier.
With high rates of gender-based violence and increasing mental health issues, Endurocad provides a safe space for them to learn new skills, become empowered, confident and develop healthy lifestyle choices as they transition into young women. Furthermore, Endurocad introduces young women to athletics and the opportunity for them to obtain scholarships abroad. Due to the current high youth unemployment rate in South Africa, exposure to study and entrepreneurship opportunities enables them to create a better life for themselves.
We want YOU to join us in building a healthy and active society of empowered g women in South Africa. Your support will allow more young women to have the opportunity to participate in our school-based programmes, with a focus on sports, life skill and a healthy lifestyle, helping them to become the next generation of female leaders.
