Ms Dineo Baloyi has been nominated in the Woman of Stature 2019 Awards in the category of Woman in Community Service. The Awards ceremony will take place on the 8th of March 2020.
She is the Founder of Dineo Foundation that is based in New Eersterus in Hammanskraal.
In 2018, she was selected among the top 10 young social entrepreneurs nationally by Monash South Africa through its MSA Leadership Fellowship Programme, in partnership with the Youth Action Net, International Youth Foundation and International Laureate Universities. She walked away with a recognition award as well as a certificate.
Ms Baloyi said, “my desire is to positively impact the environment where youth pregnancy among girls is high and drug consumption among young boys is prevalent.”
“I feel honoured to have been nominated in the women stature, It is an honour to be nominated for such a prestigious award and especially for such an empowering cause. It is indeed a cause very close to my heart and I am looking forward to making a difference in the lives of other women,” she said.
