@elliot_moyo MADE me do it, & I’m proud as hell that he did. Becoming part of the #BecauseOfHer#SanitaryPadsCollection#Campaign has opened my eyes to struggles I never even knew existed for girls and being able to help make life more comfortable for the first group of many in the future was EVERYTHING! Thank you sooo much to everyone who donated #SanitaryWear since #November and we hope to make the drive back to #Mbuyazwe Secondary #School every school month with more free sanitary wear. Thanks to @mande_tshepie for linking us with the #MinistryOfEducation who suggested the struggling school for us and even took us there. These girls come from over 40km away as far as #Figtree , #Mahatshula , #Nyamandlovu , #Tsholotsho and many more distant places to camp at this make-shift boarding school along Nyamandlovu road the whole term because they can’t afford school fees at the schools closer to them, and just 3 weeks ago their “hostel” completely burned down leaving them all with NOTHING but what they had taken to class. #Tragic . Thank God no one was hurt and I wish we could do more, but baby steps. Every bit of help counts. The drive continues, guys. Please inbox either me or @elliot_moyo to donate and help grow the pads collection even more so we can help even MORE school girls in need. Thanks again to all who have helped thus far ❤️

In these inspiring pages, Arvat shares with us how she is learning to love herself, connect with her spirit, shore up her faith, become fearless, and recognize the oneness of the universe. A few of the jewels in this book include: How to use the power of our thoughts to create the joyful, healthy, abundant lives we want Tools to change stubborn behaviors that no longer serve us Practices that can magically transform conflicts with other people How understanding our connection to everything and everybody is a game-changer Why the world needs us to dream our biggest dreams and to make them come true And even Book Club Discussion Questions at the end of the book! ⚫

It’s long overdue but I am GLAD to be able to say THANK YOU all so much for your contributions towards the #BecauseOfHer#SanitaryPadsCollection#Campaign . We asked and you guys heard us and responded with such love and because of that we were able to provide for 64 young girls in need of #SanitaryWear . From the conversations that were started through the hashtags, we fortunately had @mande_tshepie come through and be a part of the campaign and she brought in the #MinistryOfEducation who helped us identify a school in need. The school is Mbuyazwe Secondary School along Nyamandlovu road and it houses a group of children who cannot afford to pay school fees in the areas that they live in and so they come go to Mbuyazwe and have to camp there during the week to be able to attend classes. Unfortunately 3 weeks ago these girls lost everything in a fire that burnt down their hostel and they were left with nothing but what they had taken to class.
We hope to continue providing free sanitary pads to these girls every month to make their school experience more comfortable and hope to grow the list of schools we can supply even more, so many more donations are still needed without end. Please do inbox myself or @MhleNzima if you can help.
Thank you all for being part of the change.

Ohhhhhhh....the SEEDS this woman, Emma Goer, my mother has planted!!! She acquired this building 30yrs ago with my brother (Haywood Goer Jr. RIH) making the first investment of $800. Stay tuned as we began the process of "PRESERVING A LEGACY" in the neighborhood where she owned and operated 2 businesses in the Dristict 4 area.
Who remembers LITTLE GOER'S PRIVATE SCHOOL INC???? Yep that's her....still serving families today.
Help us continue to make a difference in our community one client at a time. #IamAJewel#Becauseofher#Sowingseeds#TimetoREBUILD#RESTORE#Ourcommunity
As many new women legislators prepare to enter the halls of Congress, we remember the first woman of color elected to Congress, Patsy Takemoto Mink (1927–2002), who first took office in 1965. She was a coauthor of the original Title IX legislation. Congress officially renamed the law "Patsy Takemoto Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act" less than a month after her death.
