Event description

Description

Why the name FIRE? Because fire is one of the most powerful elements; If you are in its way, it can burn you. It is so bright. It has so much passion. It has so much energy. Many fear it. Many run from it.

Young girls you are powerful! You have so much in you that the world wants to see. You will create a legacy and change the world, as we know it but you must learn to love and believe in yourself; which is what we aim to do here at Sapphire. We would work on your external, internal, skills and talents.

“When girls do not find themselves or their aspirations reflected in the books they read, or when their image is sexualized, objectified or distorted, they learn a powerful lesson about how they are devalued in society. I truly feel we should consider telling different stories to our children and not sub-estimate the power of the words coming out of our mouths as parents”

We want to change the literature. We want to influence the media. We want to tell young women that they are beautiful. We want to teach and educate them on their worth, values and how to achieve their dreams in despite of the glass ceiling.

Sunday 30th September is a day we celebrate women. To celebrate all you have achieved. We will have beauty stalls, hair, makeup, clothing, health and fitness, craft and jewellery. Women who have published books, magazines and artwork. The day would consist of music, poetry and women speakers. There would be food and drink. A day we unite women through their talents and remind them that they are beautiful inside and out.
