Angie describes herself as a social entrepreneur, dedicated to life-long learning and upliftment of disadvantaged members of our communities.
She is inspired in her empowerment work by the words of former President Mandela: “Only an all-round effort to inspire the life experience, skills, energies and aspirations of our people can lay the basis for a new SA. Our RDP will guide us from apartheid to freedom. We need to dedicate ourselves to challenges of reconstruction – not only of ourselves, but those around us whose lives we touch on a daily basis”
