As part of FSFW’s outreach program, the Face of FSFW is aimed at mentoring and celebrating young South African Women; in their diversity, to encourage the fundamentals of building relationships with other women who are working diligently to leave a positive impact in their communities, to advocate for humanitarian issues such as access to education and basic needs in Free State.
