Strengthening Mothers: Funding Proposal for Zithulele Mamas Quarterly Events


Intshisakalo Yolutsha is committed to supporting mothers in our community through the Zithulele Mamas quarterly events. These events provide a recurring platform for mothers to come together, share experiences, and find support in addressing the challenges they face. We are seeking funding to organize the Zithulele Mamas events, which will take place three times a year, providing ongoing opportunities for mothers to connect, relax, and discuss their concerns.


Mothers play a central role in the well-being of families and communities, yet they often face numerous challenges that can impact their mental, emotional, and physical health. The Zithulele Mamas quarterly events aim to provide a consistent and supportive space for mothers to come together, share their stories, and receive support and resources to navigate the complexities of motherhood.


1. Establish a recurring series of Zithulele Mamas events, held three times a year, to provide ongoing support and empowerment for mothers in our community.

2. Facilitate meaningful connections and relationships among mothers, fostering a sense of community and solidarity.

3. Address key issues faced by mothers through workshops, discussions, and resource-sharing.

4. Promote self-care and well-being among mothers through relaxation activities and access to supportive services.


1. Mothers' Circle: Quarterly group discussions where mothers can share experiences, challenges, and successes in a supportive environment.
