#LeadSA - Help a Girl, Help A Girl empowering young women in Cape Town
The Cape Town-based "Help a Girl, Help a Girl" initiative is all about the celebration of women.
It's a non-profit organisation providing mentoring and training programmes to girls from underprivileged backgrounds.
Founder Alexandra Roodt sat down with Zain Johnson recently to explain how it was formed and what they do.
