every woman is worthy no matter her past or situation
We work with women, from the age of 16 onwards, who are vulnerable, through homelessness, family dynamics, domestic abuse or those who need assistance to make some positive lifestyle changes to assist them in gaining a healthy, productive life for themselves and their family.
What we do is simple. We empower women to get their lives back & discover their self worth.

I spent 12 years in Jail. During this time my mother took care of my son by the time I was released he was 15 and I did not know him and I did not think I was worthy of being his mother after what I had done. I will not go into details about what happened, put it this way I made a stupid decision in helping my boyfriend out, most importantly my son had his mother taken away from him. The W.O.W Foundation provided to me a free workshop on self-worth and supported me in building my relationship with my son. After the course, they sent me for a job interview and one of their mentors came with me. On that day, the employer offered me the job working full-time in his cafe kitchen from that day on my life changed. I am worthy, I am a worthy woman thanks to the W.O.W Team. I learnt the secret ingredient was self-worth. Every woman needs this workshop.

At the age of 26 I had never worked, I left school at the age of 14 and at the age of 17 my mother passed away from a drug overdose. I had moved around a lot and had been in and out of many abusive relationships. I wanted to work I wanted to go back to school I did not think I could. I enrolled many times into courses and adult education but I never even attended the first day. My inner voice was telling me I was not good enough, I was stupid and not worth it. Today after attending the one month workshop my life is on a different path. The W.O.W Team supported me into Adult education to complete my schooling from there I have now started my first year at university. Most importantly they awoke my self worth they provided to me encouragement and support via sisterhood, my mentor is over 60 years of age and she had a similar background as I have had. Without her and the W.O.W Team I know I would still be jumping around in a miserable life because I was totally miserable , now today I am at Uni I work part-time and I volunteer at the foundation.
