Women empowered at talk

Gadija Behardien and Saudah Kippie, both from Portland.

Live Free Academy bootcamp empowered women entrepreneurs with motivational and inspirational talks at Masjidur Rawbie, in Portland, on Women’s Day, August 9.

Members of the academy are from all over Mitchell’s Plain and surrounds.

They meet at Westridge Gardens in summer and at the mosque hall during winter to exercise and focus on their holistic well-being with life coaching sessions, discussions on goal setting, and self-confidence and tips on improving one’s lifestyle.

Members, if they can afford it, pay R100 for eight weeks, which is used in the community to do charity.
