Footprint in Africa

Written by 
Letitia Haywood with Adele Wotherspoon

Female entrepreneurs within the community recently gathered at Hirsch’s Meadowdale for the monthly Ladies Networking event hosted by Hirsch’s.

With over 30 ladies attending, they were ready to be inspired by Mrs. Africa Globe Classics- Adele Wotherspoon’s talk- “Footprint in Africa.”

Adele is the owner of JCT Events and Co-owner of Chrystal House. She is passionate about Education and believe that with early brain interventions we can make a difference to the face of education and poverty in Africa. Since 2010 Adele has been hosting her own pageant - Miss Dare2Care. Adele saw a need for our youth to be exposed to the “real world” and to work with and for the people in our society who didn’t have all the advantages that they had. The huge difference she saw in each student who took part in the projects, encouraged her to grow this programme, and she will soon launch the Dare2Care Youth Ambassador Program.

Adele started her talk by giving some statistics on the poverty levels in Africa; Over 500 million people in sub-Sahara Africa live on $1.90 a day or less- a principal factor in causing widespread hunger. “It is our duty- in a personal capacity or as an organization to leave our footprint in Africa by helping those in need. With many initiatives to reduce poverty levels in Africa and increase the educational system for the youth in Africa- it is easy to get involved and do your bit to create a big difference.”She said.

Adele ended her talk with a quote from Adam Scott; "Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end."After Adele’s talk, Hirsch’s had the pleasure of congratulating Adele for being the latest winner of the monthly Margaret Hirsch Women in Business Achiever. She was awarded with a finalist certificate and Hirsch voucher.
