Stabile Tsumisa was in Grade 5 in 2015 when her father John Tsumisa was arrested for stock theft. John’s incarceration affected his daughter so much that she ended up dropping out of school owing to lack of school fees and the stigma associated with being a criminal’s child.

After my enrolment into the SAfAIDS Young People Leadership Academy (YPLA) training in 2013, l realised there are a lot of women out there who are determined and inspiring. SAfAIDS Executive Director Mrs Lois Chingandu was one of my role models as she believes in young women empowerment and success.
