Founded in 2015 by Tebatso Molapo at the age of 20, this private organization has managed to change and uplift young business women in South Africa.
Re Basadi directly translated means ” we are women” and the organization aims to tackle issues faced by women by giving woman a platform to discuss and support each other through various obstacles they face. In the words of the creator, Tebatso Molapo, writing about Re Basadi ” it is an organization aimed to see a sustainable growth in female owned businesses and create a network of young women who support each other and guide each other through their entrepreneurial journey. ”
The organization is involved in several projects like the ” Dress- A- Girl” campaign which aims at providing Matric dance dresses to young girls and ” A-Part- of- Me ” campaign which distributes sanitary towels to women who cannot afford them. Apart from these campaigns, Re Basadi host market days which provide a space for entrepreneurs who are women to exhibit their business initiatives.
Re Basadi’s Instagram and website/blog consists of both encouraging and moving content to both an established and upcoming business women. There are practical and easy tips to adopt from their posts that one can apply to their business so that it can grow. The organization encourages woman between the ages of 18 – 35 to join their movement to share and actively participate in the spirit of entrepreneurship.
Here you go. Our first human we admire at AfricanThyme who is changing society with one business and woman at a time.
