The 5 Pillars of Empowerment Learning Journey has been created as a holistic programme for all women. The concept was designed with the intention to provide a high standard of training with accredited trainers, coaches and mentors to educate, up skill and mentor them.

We all have different needs and strengths.  To be successful and achieve your goals and your life purpose, you need to know what these are and manage these goals!  The secret is to use your strengths and to build your developmental areas; to find the best way to be you and show yourself to others in a smart way.

Because we know every woman has unique strengths and needs, we offer a Needs Analysis Assessment at the start of your Journey – to determine your unique 5 Pillars Map or Development Plan.

The Empowerment Journey covers key skills in five categories and these are referred to as the 5 Pillars of Empowerment.
