CPI’s Dinah nominated for African Achievers Award

CPI SA’s Executive Director and Founder Dinah Bronkhorst has been nominated for an African Achievers Award.

Dinah’s nomination is in the Community Impact Category, for the exceptional impact of her community work especially in the lives of children across Southern Africa.

Dinah has some 22 years of experience in community work. She is a leader in the world of non-profit work.

“Dinah’s humble heart leads impoverished communities to self-sustainability. Over the decades she has successfully built a multi-million Rand bursary platform, helped thousands of students to successfully complete their studies, she has set up several community programmes and has helped to established foster care homes, houses of safety and ECD centres,” said Melani Lategan, CPI SA Project Coordinator.

“Her unconditional love for children keeps her motivated and driven to give all children the best future they deserve. With her knowledge she empowers communities to become independent and healthier.”

This is the 12th Edition of the African Achievers Awards held in London.

Bags of Mercy Initiative

South Africa has one of the highest rates of violence against women (GBV). The Bags of Mercy Initiative mobilises women to become an invisible friend to an abused woman by gifting a handbag – old or new – filled with things that can make her rediscover her self-worth.

Abuse against women usually takes place behind closed doors:
Hard words where no-one else can hear.
Blows where no-one can see it.
