About

Our goal is to create 3.5 Million female-owned businesses within the next 10-years generating 14 million jobs. The Walk In Freedom Organization creates female entrepreneurs to empower them in every aspect of their lives. Walk In Freedom teaches women skills aligned with their interests; entrepreneurship and business management skills development. They then receive a mentor who has the experience to assist them in starting their own business. Walk In Freedom funds the capital goods that are needed for the business to take off. There is also support given in creating a brand for the business. We walk the path with these powerful women while creating a legacy group where they can, in turn, mentor other women. Walk In Freedom functions through sponsorships of courses, classes, and any skill development opportunities. We also rely on people pledging to be mentors as well as financial donations to support these female businesses with the capital they need.

WHY WALK IN FREEDOM?

There are not enough job opportunities. So we will create them.

WHY WALK IN FREEDOM?

GBV affects 1 in 3 women

UNCONTROLLED GENDER PAY GAP

81c

Women earn 81c for every 1 dollar earned by men.

“GBV occurs as a result of normative role expectations and unequal power relationships between genders in society.”

One of the main drivers of GBV is unequal power roles between genders. This can be driven by socio-economic power. Walk In Freedom focuses on equipping women financially to ensure leaving an abusive relationship is not a choice between being afraid for your life or being able to put food on the table.

WHY WALK IN FREEDOM?

2 out of 3 South African children are raised without their father.

We need to grow our children’s dreams. Who better to know and develop a child’s dreams than their mother? We need to equip our mothers financially to support the next South African generation. They are, after all, the ones raising the next generation and we honour them!

HERE’S TO STRONG WOMEN

MAY WE KNOW THEM

MAY WE BE THEM

MAY WE RAISE THEM

Walk In Freedom Purpose

Our goal is to create 3.5 Million female-owned businesses within the next 10-years generating 14 million jobs.
What is female empowerment:
Women are already powerful beings. Female empowerment is not creating powerful women but allowing them to unleash all the power they already have within. We will do this by creating a society for women where they are equipped to choose their path! We are taking back the narrative and allowing our women to be the author of their own stories. These stories will not be dictated by an unequal society, unfair social norms, and GBV. They have always been the main character; we are just creating the spotlight to allow them to take this stage and shine.
