We deeply appreciate our fans, followers and supporters. Over the years we’ve built up a special relationship with these people:
Madichaba works in the Transformation Programmes unit at the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs. As part of her work, she monitors the mainstreaming of gender, youth and disabilities issues in local government and provides support where there are challenges. Madichaba is an exemplary example of how the private and public sector can work together and support each other.
She has been a crusader for social issues over the past four decades and the driving force and facilitator behind numerous development conventions and training initiatives.
Mara founded a non-profit organisation called the TEARS Foundation (Transform Education About Rape and Sexual Abuse) after experiencing personal trauma. Survivors of rape and abuse need help to timeously reach a specialist care facility and this is the arena in which her foundation works. TEARS has initiated an easy way in which people can access the support they need, should these circumstances occur.
