IMBELEKO                         FOUNDATION

Imbeleko envisions to provide a holistic empowerment experience to the orphaned and vulnerable child in rural Valley of a 1000 Hills; encompassing academic support, a healthy lifestyle and social interaction. We hope to nurture at least 1000 DREAMS in the Valley of 1000 Hills by 2025.

Imbeleko Foundation will be commemorating International Women’s Day on the 11th of March 2017 through the Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walk, a global initiative, initiative comprises 132 Walks taking place in 61 Countries around the world. 4 of these walks will be taking place in South Africa in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

 

Imbeleko Foundation’s Co-Founder and CEO, Sbu Myeni, a Vital Voices Global Ambassador Programme Alumnae is the Flag Bearer for the Durban Walk which will take place through the KwaNyuswa Valley of the majestic Valley of a 1000 Hills.

 

 

The Walk

Each walk around the world is themed to reflect the intention and outcomes of the specific walk.  Our intention is to create an accessible platform for dialogue between mentor and mentee, while creating visibility around women leadership and mentorship.

 

Our Mentoring Walk Theme is: Her Story, Your Story, Shared Stories.

 

The Global Mentoring Walk is an opportunity to highlight the importance of women’s leadership, and to accelerate the impact of women leaders through mentoring. Organised by outstanding local leaders who are key members of the Vital Voices Global Leadership Network, the annual Mentoring Walk brings together established women leaders and emerging women leaders to walk together in their community.

 

As they walk, they discuss their professional challenges and successes and establish a mentoring relationship in which the seasoned leader guides, advises and support her peer. The benefits of women’s mentorship are numerous. It establishes camaraderie, creates gender-friendly environments, promotes a stronger environment for women’s success, and expands horizons for further personal growth as women explore innovative leadership strategies.

 

Vital Voices is the leading non-governmental organization (NGO) that identifies, trains and empowers emerging women leaders and social entrepreneurs around the globe, enabling them to create a better world. Vital Voices believes that mentoring is a critical activity in empowering women to succeed as leaders and creating opportunities for women on a local scale.
