BraveGirl Camp is a Women’s Empowerment camp held on the Waterford campus on an annual basis. This initiative was started by WK students in 2017 with the aim of bringing together Swazi teenage girls from schools around Mbabane to engage in discussions on women’s empowerment in an urban Swazi context.
The project combines a five-night residency camp, which includes a day-long job shadowing experience, as well as providing training for the teachers from the girls’ schools. During the job shadowing, the girls are given an opportunity to see the life of a working woman in business institutions around Mbabane and Ezulwini. “We had a great event and we would like to thank everyone who was involved,” said Phumelele Mncina (IB1), who is one of the organizers.
