About Amanda

I am employed full-time as an Office Manager at a leading research organization.

I am founder and CEO of a community initiative in Mitchells Plain called PhenomenalWomen; the objectives include the rebuilding and restoration of women to enable them to shift from victim to victor, dependence to independence and to stimulate entrepreneurship, self-reliance and economic stability. My philosophy is ‘when you teach a woman to fish, you feed her for a lifetime’.

I am also a mentor, a counsellor, an entrepreneur and an avid reader; and believe that when you instil a love for reading in a child, you give that child a skill that can be used as a currency for future. In a plight to alleviate the literacy rate in the country, I started The Reading Room in May 2012 where ‘problem’ readers are assisted to become confident readers.

I initiated and co-ordinate Secret Santa to give children in disadvantaged circumstances a gift at Christmas.
