In February 2021 the Executive Director, Ms Gugu Ndebele launched and hosted Sipping Tea with Thishomkhulu (STWT) talks. For the first talk, Thishomkhulu, Ms Ndebele “sipped tea” with Advokate Kholeka Gcaleka. Thishomkhulu used Adv Gcaleka’s story as an example of what education can do to better one’s life. Following that impactful talk, Thishomkhulu “sipped tea” with Mr Lorato Tshenkeng, Unathi Nkayi and Dr Lulu Gwagwa. It is without doubt that the talks were moving.

Thishomkhulu afforded her audience, the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls (OWLAG) community and her audience beyond the OWLAG Community a chance to get to know the people behind the titles Advocate, Communications Specialist, Media Personality, Philanthropist, Entrepreneur, Leader, Parent, etc. Thishomkhulu’s audience were keen to know more about leadership, resilience and how best to empower oneself.

Currently we have no upcoming seminars.
