11 May 2017

Fit is the New It is a fundraising event for Deaf women who are beneficiaries of the Deaf Women Economic Emancipation Program (DWEEP) which was launched in 2014 by the Tshepiso Mokoena Foundation. The main objective of the Women Economic Emancipation Program is to empower unemployed Deaf women and young women who aspire to become social entrepreneurs in the craft that they are passionate about and to create an environment that will enable self-employment initiatives.

DWEEP also aims to identify mentors who will impart empowering knowledge to groom and develop women in the entrepreneurship sector. DWEEP hosts seminars, workshops and trainings throughout the year that empower women.

The annual event is held every September during The International Deaf Awareness Month. In this event, DWEEP celebrates achievements and reflect on milestones. Fit is the New It event costs R100 per person. It is a 3 hour aerobics marathon with loads of fun and entertainment and is held across different venues around South Africa.
