Mariana Visagie, the crèche manager arranged a very special occasion for the women of Zwartbooisberg to celebrate Women’s Day. The function took place on Saturday 13th
August at the crèche. The speakers from Upington who addressed the women were:
- Mr Johan du Pokoy from Cosatu
- Anthony Wyngaardt from the Lawyer for Human Rights
- Maurition Phillips from Women on Farms
To ensure that every woman present at the event understood the different messages, Mariana arranged for a translator. All the speakers addressed the issue on the rights of women and provided information on women working on farms.
The local women and children concluded the program for the day by dancing traditional dances. Winston Diergaardt and Brandton Visagie also entertained the women with their special moves. The day was a success and women went home educated.
