Thank you very much for assisting Women Business Center Team to help develop our Young Feminist In Action Programme.

Your contribution and involvement will further motivate us to work directly with other young women within our community and make a difference in their lives.

The impact this contest has created is immense and will be felt by underserved and marginalized young women not only in South Africa but Africa at large.

It has been a pleasure working closely with other women in this unique forum.

I hope this is the beginning of a successful relationship and many partnerships to come.

The Young feminist in Action Leaders were invited to join the Inter-Parliamentary Union on Regional Training Seminar on HIV/AIDS for the Parliamentarians of SADC and EAC Cape Town, 20 and 21 January 2009.

It was very practical and informative seminar. We engaged and learnt a lot.

A full report about our activities would be posted in due course.

Thank you once again.
