The Women of Worth (WOW) group celebrated Women’s Day by treating women in the community to a light lunch and dessert at St Mary’s church in Retreat, on Thursday August 9.

WOW serves the women of Cafda, Steenberg, Grassy Park and Retreat.

Bernadette Joseph, spokesperson for WOW, said they aim to unite women. She said women have the potential to uplift themselves, their families and by extension their communities.

“Many are good seamstresses, cooks, bakers and entrepreneurs.

The aim is to put women together to help each other as we want to uplift our community by using their skills.” The network aims to enrich women both financially and spiritually.
