MEET THE DIRECTORS

Sizo is a Final year BBusci student specialising in Finance and Accounting. Born and bred in the Midlands, Sizo is deeply rooted in what he considers the soul of South Africa, KZN. A staunch Pan-Africanist who believes that for the African cause to be furthered, the broader society must be included particularly women who are often the driving force of the continent . He believes that by creating an environment in which GBV is non-existent should be amongst the continents primary obligation, especially RSA. Sizo is sure that Asikhulumeni will steer attention to the broader issues faced by women in this country everyday and will assist with creating a tangible solution to GBV.

Karabo

Karabo is a final year, Business Science in Finance with Accounting student at UCT. He grew up in Durban, KZN, where he was raised by his grandparents from the age of 4. He is the founder of this organisation and truly believes in the power of conversations to be able to bring sustainable change. His views and thoughts on gender-based violence changed when he began to have conversations about it. Thus he believes that it is in and through conversations that the organisation will be able to play a role in developing the future men of South Africa – men who will think and do better than the men who have gone before them who have done some of these terrible things. His dream for the organisation is to slowly begin to bring an end to gender-based violence in our country, one conversation at a time.

Alex wholeheartedly believes in Asikhulumeni and it’s ability to do good, and is honoured to be a director!
