“They will be discussing the challenges and issues affecting young girls that might be the reasons for their ill behaviour.

“They will also discuss the activities that girls engage in which lead to making bad decisions.

“We will also identify what needs to be done to help fight some of the social ills in schools.

“Through the platform they will come up with solutions for grooming them to become responsible people in society,“ she says.

Mngomezulu says that through such initiatives they are hoping to reform the girls.

“We have identified that these young women need support and positive role models from the community.
