To get involved, please email me at – firstname.lastname@example.org or catch me on my facebook page – Meagan Duckitt, or the Equilibrium facebook page.
I am a firm believer that we have the power to transform lives, one person at a time.
Past Saturday I had the opportunity to head up a project in conjunction with an NPO I co-founded called Equilibrium, and we donated at least 50 dresses to matric learners from the Cape flats who cannot afford their own.
We had phenominal speakers to encourage the ladies to
follow their dreams!
It was such an honour to be part of such an event
