Cavendish Square Turns Girls into Princesses


International Mandela Day is July 18th, the anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birthday. It asks individuals to make the world a better place, and to take individual responsibility for changing the world – just like Mr. Mandela has.

Cavendish Square has taken the spirit of the day and applied it to an important mission: stopping assault and abuse of women and children. It’s set aside 67 minutes this weekend to celebrate girls and women, to “empower disadvantaged and abused South African girls to become the Princesses they were born to be,” with Every Girl’s a Princess.

Last month, the center held a Youth Day Self Empowerment Workshop and Makeover for 20 young girls who are living in disadvantaged situations or who have survived abuse. They were brought together through Woman’s Hope Education and Training Trust. The center worked to transform the girls and help them build hope for their own fairytale futures.

This weekend, the girls will come out and and show off their new confidence and image at the Mandela Day Princess Party. All girls and their families are invited, and will have the chance to sign a treaty against rape and abuse and to build a record-breaking gathering of teen girls who demand to be treated like the princesses they are. Girls are also asked to wear their own princess shoes and bring a pair of shoes to donate to the Princess Slipper project.
