By Nomsa Daniels, Chief Executive Officer, The Graça Machel Trust
I am honoured to have been invited to contribute a piece to Inyathelo’s 2016-2017 annual report under the theme of “Reimagining Our Future”. As a starting point, it is worth reminding ourselves of the steadfast and important role that advocacy organisations, like Inyathelo and the Graça Machel Trust, play in these tumultuous times. Advocacy is defined as “the act or process of supporting a cause”. In the case of the Graça Machel Trust, our cause is rooted in improving the lives of Africa’s women and children, to realise our vision of creating caring societies that value social justice, equal opportunity and sustainable development.
