SAWW has been serving the South African-Canadian community, there's always
a new reason to join. Maybe you're looking to have some fun, would like
to join us in embracing South African women who have made a difference,
meet interesting and influential people, support educational programs
for disadvantaged students, expose your services or business, or
just simply to give back to the community.
The SAWW events are the most talked about social and business occasions
in our community. The annual South African Women for Women Awards Ceremony
draws many interested individuals from various aspects of business, women’s
issues, South African related issues and from the Canadian and South
African communities at large. These are incredible opportunities for
you to market
yourself, your products or services.
The SAWW has an extensive mailing list consisting of the professional
community, women’s issues, governmental entities and companies doing business
in South Africa. This list includes members and supporters
of our events over the past two years. Our mailing lists are requested
from various reputable organizations and corporations when dignitaries
visit Canada in order for the individuals on our mailing/members to
be invited to these prestigious events.
The South African Women’s Day Awards recognize ten members annually of
our community at a gala ceremony attended by growing numbers from among
Education is the cornerstone of a strong community. Part of your membership
fee is used to provide scholarships to deserving young people in our community.
This year SAWW gave funds to five well deserving students to assist them in
pursuing their education. The SAWW also sponsor programs such as the Teacher’s
Mentoring Program through which we were able to send Canadian teachers to South
Africa to introduce new teaching skills and support teachers. This initiative
is a first for SAWW and is designed to specifically respond to the needs identified
in the South African schools.
