Refiloe Charmaine Mgcina has dedicated her life to helping disadvantaged young people especially women. She founded an NPO called Resurrection, where she equips young women through workshops.

 

“As I was growing up whenever I saw a child with a need I would be touched and cry. I remember when my mother bought me new school uniform and I gave it away to a child who needed it”, says Refiloe.

 

She daily pursues to help at least a minimum of two young people and help them overcome their challenges. “I started a girls’ forum, whereby I use my life experiences to encourage them. Our slogan is; ‘Three Ps down’ which simply says; Pity Pack Phansi. Examples of Pity packs are ‘I have no parents, I was raped, my mother hates me etc.’

 

Refiloe draws her emotional, spiritual and physical strength from her relationship with Jesus as her Lord and from her mentor, Deaconess Mnguni.

 

"My goal is to raise sound and responsible future leaders, who love themselves and God”, she adds. “The challenges I face is them not wanting their parents to know what they go through, like being sexually molested by their own fathers”.

 

Refiloe uses her little resources to keep the work she does going and would appreciate any form of support to ensure that she reaches out to as many girls as possible.
