She emphasizes that by taking responsibility for our actions and prioritizing the well-being of others, we can collectively drive meaningful change and create a better South Africa.
Under her campaign, #GracedtogiveSA, Wande has organized two impactful charity drives, focusing on communities close to her heart. These initiatives aim to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of those who need it most.
Wande Siswana’s first initiative involved organizing a drive to donate sanitary pads. Every month, one out of every four female students who menstruate misses school due to a lack of access to menstrual hygiene products and support. The issue of period poverty is increasingly affecting our nation. As part of Youth Day 2023, In collaboration with InspHired Recruitment Solutions and Thandokhulu High School, Wande Siswana has assisted the 670 young girls a by giving out over 3000 sanitary pads
Her second initiative focuses on donating clothing to U-turn, an organization that provides a comprehensive rehabilitation program for the homeless, helping them transition from the streets to employment. Wande’s goal is not only to offer handouts to the homeless but to provide them with a hand up.
Together, let us support Wande Siswana and her inspiring efforts as she continues to empower communities and strive for positive change.
