Student YMCA Celebrates Women’s Month

Student YMCA Celebrates Women’s Month
Young women came to learn more from Dr Delarise Mulqueeny.

In celebration of Women’s Month, UKZN’s Student YMCA hosted a lunch with the emphasis on empowering, motivating and educating young women - and men - about how to overcome challenges and deal with life’s harsh realities.

Guest speaker, Dr Delarise Malqueeny, spoke on issues faced by young people, including sexual reproductive health and rights.

Malqueeny also spoke about the importance of education, the need for people to get their priorities right when it comes to education as well as different types of abuses including physical, verbal, emotional and sexual, which many women are victims of.

The YCMA thanked Mulqueeny for her involvement and also those who had sponsored the event, which was attended by both women and men.

The YMCA will host two more events that will concentrate on issues of entrepreneurship, budgeting, time management, depression, healthy relationships, and sexual reproductive health and rights. Anyone interested in attending these functions should call Phumelele Hadebe on 061 948 6926 or email phumelelehadebe3@gmail.com.
