# JOIN THE SISTERHOOD
CHANGING COMMUNITIES BY FACILITATING EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING
IN THE POWER OF WOMXN
TO CHANGE COMMUNITIES
Khwela Womxn leverages technology to connect young womxn around the world in local sisterhood circles and an international network, offering support, exposure and access to opportunities and experiential learning in order to become upwardly mobile and grow.
SUPPORT FOR WOMXN
We all carry trauma. Through monthly local sister “hood” circles in safe spaces womxn share their lived experiences and stories with peers, gaining insights and building resilience. Through circles womxn nurture the confidence to show up and step into their power, while learning from others.
EXPOSURE FOR WOMXN
To new ways of thinking. Meet Alora: our Whatsapp Mentor Bot, who delivers practical personal and career advice on the channel most womxn across Khwela already engage in. Alora’s content is driven by topical themes that real womxn want to learn more about.
Through events and inter-chapter leadership training, womxn have an opportunity to broaden their network and access opportunities. Access to travel, regular skills training workshops, bursaries, learnerships and our mentorship program are exclusively available for circle members who actively participate..
What womxn have to say
To me, being a Khwela Womxn means climbing higher and believing in yourself. The impact of this community has made such a difference in my life: being surrounded by beautiful women with different ideas and perspectives, gives me a sense of pride and identity. It allows us to support one another through interactive experiences about real, modern, life struggles. Having this open forum with others is what builds valuable relationships and gives us a deeper sense of belonging. I’ve learned that my strength may be someone else’s weakness and visa versa. This experience has allowed me to feel so much better about myself and I am more likely to have a positive view of my life and future goals. 🙌

Khwela has taught me to be open. One of the Khwela values is to ‘get naked fast’, which has taught me to be myself, to not wear a certain mask but to remove that mask and get into a space where I can be ‘naked’ in front of my sisters. The environment of Khwela workshops and facilitation training challenges me – and it is broadening my horizons! So I’m really grateful for the opportunity.
Being part of the Khwela Womxn community has taught me to always listen, to be like a sponge, and soaking as much wisdom of knowledge as possible because we learn every single day, intelligence can not be fixed. People have different stories and lessons, we always have to listen. There might be somebody who will need a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen, just for you to be there for that person. 👂❤️
Ntokozo Khanyisile Tshabalala “Khanyi”
Khwela means ‘Climb’ to the top and for me, being a Khwela Womxn means being part of a movement and having supportive companionship. Being part of the community has taught me important things such as self-worth, acknowledgment, and consideration. I have always been a hustler, but this has impacted my life positively – now I hustle more and I schedule in what I have to do step-by-step.📝

Through Khwela I’ve been reintroduced to myself – it brought me closer to myself. It challenged me to take part in all my goals and desires without thinking of shortcomings, procrastinating and hesitating. I overcame these fears because I am surrounded by powerful womxn who I know can hold me if I fall at any given moment.
