Precious Tsolo-Maseya

Founder and Director

The purpose of establishing Women of Hope was to provide support to women who are going through difficulties in their lives. My journey of life was not easy, I went through disappointment, rejection and abuse. I lost financial stability but never gave up because I knew that there is still hope.

I always found encouragement through the word of God.¬† This scripture, Ecclesiastes 9:4 “Anyone who is among the living has hope –even a live dog is better off than a dead lion!“, encouraged me not to lose hope. I knew that as long as I live, I can change my tears of pain to tears of joy.¬† Most of the time when you go through challenges no one understand the pain and frustration you are carrying on your shoulders, but someone who went through that will understand.
