Those who apply will be selected on the strength of the motivation that they will fill in. Applicants must be either studying or currently working in their chosen mentors’ field. 

#FunkItImWalking is an NPC founded by Nomsa Mazwai. It aims to make it safer for a woman to walk at any time of day. They believe safety is valuable. If South Africa is safe enough for a woman to walk at any time of day, in any condition, then it is safe for everyone. Safety is valuable, and #FunkItImWalking, through its programs, is unlocking the value of being safe.

In safer communities, the: 

  • Property prices are better
  • Businesses can operate for longer hours  
  • SMEs benefit from eliminating the costs related to security. These are a barrier to entry for many entrepreneurs and possible business innovations. 

Nomsa Mazwai shares, “The 100/100 mentor walk is an annual walk for #FunkItImWalking, which seeks to create and enhance professional networks between generations. We want to contribute towards building the South Africa of our dreams and we believe this is possible through connecting industry leaders with emerging professionals on a 1-hour walking and sharing experience’. 

#FunkItImWalking, let’s walk to freedom.
