RTWN Sanitary Towels & Deodorants Campaign

#findthebox campaign

RTWN Sanitary Towels and Deodorants Campaign was launched in December 2015. This campaign is aimed bringing back the confidence of girls and boys from disadvantaged background.

Why is this important?

This campaign helps to keep a girl child & boy child in school, to help them focus on what’s more important and that is their studies.

Always make time for giving back.

Martina Meisie Motaung

Battling Through the Struggles of Life to Find my Purpose Again…

I overcame Rape, HIV, TB and Cervical at my early stages in life. “When it happened, I decided I wasn’t going to let it get me down. “He took something from me and I couldn’t prevent that, but the rest of my life is mine. I have my life and that’s that matters.”

Recounting the day of the attack 11 years ago, she said: “I was travelling in a taxi from work home. The sun had just set and it was a peaceful evening. I had so many thoughts about what I was going to do when I get home” But no it was not to be…

“I often wonder to myself if I already knew 45 years ago, that this would be my story to tell today..”

She begins her speech as she looks at her audience but sees beyond their plastered smiles to touch the deep pain they suffer. Her audience constituency is largely pooled from the most marginalized and highly vulnerable rural communities, many of whom suffer from HIV/AIDS, Cancer, TB or all three.

Martina was raped over twelve years ago. She was subsequently diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.

A year later she suffered from pulmonary TB and survived, only to face the gruesome trials of cervical cancer shortly after.

“I had to follow a very trying TB treatment plan and for eight months I was living on countless pills that left me drained,” she recalls. “But I persevered knowing that if I falter I would simply die.”

As an HIV/AIDS infected person, Martina was full aware of her vulnerability to other diseases and she was determined to face her challenges with a healthy lifestyle and continuous screening.

“Early screening was my primary concern but still, when the doctor called me to announce that I had stage 4 cervical cancer, the only question I had for him was: Am I going to die? One is never prepared for the shock and fear that come with the diagnosis.”

Rising above what a human being can withstand at one time, Martina survived and was declared TB and Cancer free. She soon decided to become a motivational speaker and establish support groups for those who still had to journey through the suffering and pain.

On an early February morning in 2015, Martina received an invitation to join Madam Tobeka Madiba Zuma on a Warrior’s Walk to honour cancer survivors. At the time, she was juggling a day job as a customer service attendant at Gautrain and also served as a motivational speaker.

“I felt honoured to walk along-side the first lady and the president of RSA,” she says. “When I was called to the VIP side to meet our first lady in person, I could see in her eyes how moved she was by my story. But the mood that day was so positive and so inspiring that I just knew that she understood.”

Shortly after, Martina was invited to join the Tobeka Madiba Zuma Foundation and share her journey to inspire hundreds if not thousands of survivors across the country.

“I remember my first speech in front of the first lady,” she chuckles. “I don’t know Zulu but I had to speak to these kind old ladies and I made an effort. I managed of course but after they had a few laughs at my account.”

TMZF has given Martina a job that speaks to her new vocation and her passion to push people to hold on to hope and get assessed. Her rigid treatment plan required flexible hours and a relaxed environment for her health to thrive.  She offered herself as a shield to create an honest and compassionate space that allows me to reach out beyond taboos and fear and discuss lifesaving behaviors with many disenfranchised communities.

“I learned to better present myself, make my case, abide by higher ethical grounds and most of all to be the change that I want to see,” she says.

As she looks around and spreads hope with her ever confident, compassionate smile, she concludes her speech. “Early detection saved my life, twice. It can save yours and those you love the most.

Chance for Change Youth Seminar

Chance for Change Youth Seminar 1st Anniversary is coming
29 – 30 Septemer 2017, at Ramatlabama, Tsetse Village.

We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE…

Boitumelo Katisi

I am based in Pimville, Soweto living with a single mother and a little sister and my cousin whom is my late uncles son taken care of by my mother.

I was born in 1992, on the 11th of April, grew up in Sunninghill and attended Rivonia Primary then later on went to attend Bryanston High School and matriculated in 2010.

My first encounter in Aviation begun in 2008 when we were given a Life Orientation Assignment to visit a work place one would be interested in working in for a day and give back a full report on how your experience at that workplace went.

I had no clue onto which company or workplace I could go to as I was still making up my mind on becoming a Lawyer or a Doctor or an Engineer or Architect, that evening I

went home still with an unmade mind onto where I would go for my assignment my mother suggested something I never thought about. She suggested I go to work with my Aunt who works at South African Airways.

I thought about it and thought, well I hadn’t been at an airport in years so I might as well give it a try. The day that changed my life finally arrived, on my way to OR Tambo International with my aunt, as we got closer I spotted the Huge aircraft’s making they way to land at the airport, I’ve never seen them up close to that extent so it really caught my attention, I was so interested in the Planes from that moment that my aunt also picked it up, we arrived at her work station which is an office environment where they deal with a lot of paper work for the Airline.

My time with her, was cut short as she suggested I rather go sit where the Pilots do check in’s for their Flights, upon walking in the check in area for the pilots, the first thing I saw was their Airline hats and bags lined up along with some of the Pilot Blazers, I went on to meet the guy who managers that department and spent all day with him, I learnt a lot regarding how the pilots check in, how to check a flights schedule and the statistics of the Airline which made me question him if their were any female pilots as I was there for several hours and only met male pilots, I was told that not many females flew and most settled to be Cabin crew.

It was that moment that most probably changed my career choice, and meeting the Pilots and seeing the simulators they use and seeing the huge aircraft’s up close, I knew that moment that this was no ordinary industry yet very interesting and exciting career choice. That day when I left SAA I could only go on about the aircraft’s and flight crew I met, I decided I wanted to be a pilot.

After my matric year I had to convince my mother that wanting to be an Airline Pilot wasn’t a phase I went through and a career I really wanted to pursue after doing a lot of research and meeting my Mentor who is an Airline Pilot with SAA, Tshepo van Roos I really got an ideal on where to go from high school to pursue this dream, my Mentor guided me and really showed me light when it comes to Aviation, upon attending my first Airshow in 2012 at Rand Airport all thanks to an awesome organization, Southern African Women In Aviation & Space which is a great organization pushing women empowerment in the industry and taking aviation to the people as many of us from schools never got introduced to Aviation.
