August is being celebrated nationally as Women’s Month; we started this celebration by speaking to Di Olivier a trustee of The Black Sash. The Black Sash has been working "towards making human rights real" for 6 decades. This year they will be celebrating their 60th anniversary at the Artscape Women’s Humanity Arts Festival 2015 with a photo exhibition and launch of their latest publication by author and long-time Black Sash member, Mary Burton.

The Kensington girls’ choir came to share their talent with us. They will be leaving on a tour to
2015. For more Switzerland information you can contact Lizl
Gaffley on 076 026 2512.
We also spoke to author Ntsiki Siege about her book, A Broken Wing. This book is a true story about her journey going through a divorce and having to raise her 3 children. She also addresses the guilt that one carries when going through divorce and not dealing with one's feelings. This an encouragement to overcome life’s adversities. For more
information you can email Ntsiki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
