Today I had the first workshop leading up to the Princess Party 2018 which takes place on the 5th of May. Today the group of 10 girls from Heideveld & Manenberg had their introduction session in which I got to know more about them & the challenges they face in their communities. For those who aren't aware of what the Princess Party is about allow me to summarize it for you quickly. I started the Princess Party at the age of 16 my only goal at that time was to make girls who have nothing feel as if they're worthy of everything that's good in this world. The princess party started with girls from children's home's in Crawford & Wynberg and has grown since then. The aim of the Princess Party went from only being concerned about cute dresses to finding ways to educate young girls on the Cape Flats so that they grow up to be women of strength & make a difference in their communities. Within the Kaapse Vlakte we are faced with many challenges & this project aims to arm these girls with the tools to overcome these challenges & not let it overpower them. marine corps ball dresses
