Zimkhitha Ndinga, SAEP's Bridging Year programme Coordinator, has been accepted to participate in Catholic Welfare Development's Emerging Leaders Process.
The Emerging Leaders Process is a series of workshops and dialogues designed to grow and develop young women and bring out their full potential both individually and organisationally.
The process will "develop young, energetic women who have an appetite to learn, young women who show potential and a quest to become leaders, and are able to assist their organisations to achieve their vision".
A native of Cape Town, Zimkhitha grew up in Nyanga township, where she completed primary and high school. After matriculating in 2004, Zimkhitha was accepted into SAEP's Bridging Year programme in 2005. Upon graduation from SAEP, she was accepted to the University of the Western Cape to study towards a bachelor's degree in Politics.
She returned to SAEP as an employee in March 2011, as a tutor in the Hope Scholars programme and assistant coordinator in SAEP's Tertiary Support programme. In 2012, she stepped up to the role of SAEP's Bridging Year coordinator.
SAEP is honoured to have Zimkhitha represent the organisation in The Emerging Leaders Process.
