Who are we?
Asinakekelane is a community initiative at Waterford Kamhlaba United World College of Southern Africa.
Asinakekelane was born in May of 2019 by a group of teachers at Waterford Kamhlaba looking to address issues of gender-based violence and discrimination. Students, parents, staff, and alumni joined, and the initiative gathered momentum.
In September of 2019, Asinakekelane held its first event, a candlelit vigil to mark the brutal rape and murder of Uyinene Mrwetyana in South Africa, and to commemorate local victims of gender-based violence. Asinakekelane is now a vibrant student and community action group with over 80 members.
Asinakekelane is an initiative which provides a platform for student voices to be heard. Born out of building awareness on gender-based violence and gender inequality, Asinakekelane continues to facilitate conversations about issues of discrimination found within both the Swazi and Waterford community in order to build a better future.
