Women of valour gathered together on Saturday in Sandton at the Southern Sun Hotel, from various walks of life across Africa, brought together by an organisation called Women of God Africa, which is an organisation that helps the poor, widows and orphans and also empowers women in the continent at large. Ayanda Ncwane was one of the speakers, alongside TV and Radio personality Ayanda Allie-Paine and businesswoman and pastor, Phindile Mazindo.

The gathering empowered women in the areas of dealing with abuse, divorce, relationships that are not good and other complications that women are facing on their daily basis.

WOG Africa reaches out to those who cannot help themselves; they visit orphanages and provide whatever little they can through their various outreaches, such as school uniform and stationery drive. “We go to orphanages and whatever little we can; we are about purpose and we empower women. We don’t do what we are doing to look fancy; we do what we are doing to help others”, said Founding Member, Amanda Matshaka.

Ayanda Allie-Paine shared her career journey and testimony attesting to the fact that we all face challenges in life. “We look like we have zero problems, zero issues, we have this image like everything is good, but when we are alone we start lamenting”, she said.
The audience was touched by Ayanda Ncwane who shared how she and her boys are coping after the loss of her husband Sfiso Ncwane whom they dearly loved. Mam’ Ncwane as those who are fond of her refer to Ayanda, exclaimed how painful it is to live a life of being scrutinized by people who don’t know you. “We are now living during brutal times, we are living during social media times where everything is judged and scrutinized but we find refuge in the Lord”.

Pastor Phindile Mazindo share a powerful Word; warning people of the tricks of the enemy and how he seeks to attack our identity and our destiny.
Gospel singer Ndlo Dlakala kept the audience in worship mode with her velvety voice. The event was a great success!
