Decisions for Life events in SA - July/August 2011

All about the Decisions for Life Campaign in South Africa, Young Women and Work and the DFL in South Africa, Decisions for Life and events in South Africa on Womens Day and more on Mywage South Africa

The Decisions for Life (DFL) campaign, an empowering project aimed at young South African women, will be holding several special events around the country over the next few months, from August to September. 

The aim of the Decisions for Life project is to raise awareness among young female workers about their employment opportunities, career possibilities, their workplace rights and the work-family balance. Already more than 1000 young women in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Limpopo have been involved in the project.

The Right to a Decent Life!

For young women, choosing careers, responding to challenges at home and at work, balancing work and life and planning futures are all important decisions. Through discussions, social networks, workshops, trade union meetings and everyday interaction at the workplace, as well as using the internet, the Decisions for Life campaign invites all young women to take the power to make decisions about their lives!
