It can be easy to feel isolated when you don’t have access to learning and opportunities, and support and a growth mindset to access the new digital world.

When we interviewed over 100 young South African women, we realised they feel isolated. They don’t have access (i.e. data and wifi) to learning and opportunities, and they lack support (i.e. mentors) and a growth mindset to access the new digital world.

We have realised that without these tools womxn will not be able to climb, to grow and thrive and build the resilience, growth mindset and courage to climb personally and professionally within the current patriarchal system.

Khwela Womxn equips women with opportunities for experiential learning, credible education, financial growth and access to safe peer-mentorship spaces (sisterhood circles), so that they can shift their mindsets and elevate themselves personally and professionally. We leverage technology to reach womxn who may otherwise lack access.

Asanda Daraza


Asanda is originally from the Eastern Cape and has been in Cape Town for 6 years now. She co-founded Khwela Womxn in 2018 with Kim Whitaker, following her passion for travel and womxn empowerment. Growing up in the rural Eastern Cape was not an easy ride for her as she didn't have access to many opportunities, support, and information needed for one to succeed in life. After graduating with her Bachelor in Social Work, she got exposed to the Tourism industry where she fell in love with serving and meeting new people. She learned that travel is truly transformative, as it broadens one's mind. Asanda's goal is to continue living her passion of empowering herself through meeting and empowering new womxn from different backgrounds, who are in search of self-growth in every aspect of their lives and becoming change agents in their communities in the process.
