It is a catalyst for my self-development.  It has provided a space for me to process my "stuff sufficiently,  so that I can move forward to a more fulfilling life- closer to my truth."

Workshops Offered in South Africa:

We offer most of the Woman Within Workshops in South Africa. Women For Afrika (WFA) has entered an International Hosting Agreement (IHA) with Woman Within International (WWI) which sets the Base rates, and fixed expenses per workshop. Inclusivity is a key criteria for all workshops, so where possible, are offered in both the Western Cape and Gauteng. This also extends to the workshop location, needing to be central so that everyone can attend. The costs of the workshops are determined by the following:

  • The set Base Prices by WWI as per our IHA
  • Revenue share (for the intellectual property of the workshop which is 10% of the set Base Price) 
  • Presenters Fees
  • Presenters lodging and meals (where applicable)
  • Presenter travel (where applicable)
  • Workshop Venue / food 
  • Workshop supplies
We do our best to keep the workshop prices lower than what is set by Woman Within International.

Below is a list of workshops we offer here in South Africa
