    Welcome @Ntsiki , it is great to have you here!

    It sounds like you have a really wonderful background focusing on empowering girls and young women and community development. Maybe you could share your knowledge with members of the Community Development discussion.

    Do you have any advice for others working in the nonprofit sector in South Africa? What would you like to learn from others about their work in the country?

    Thanks for introducing yourself!

    It is really wonderful to hear about your background doing such important work. Do you have any thoughts you would like to share with the group about working on reproductive health and HIV? Are there questions you have for others like @STEPHANIE who are also working on the issue?
