Ruth Women Rising is a non-profit initiative who run solely on donations, fundraising and own monthly membership contributions. The organisation started on June 7 in Stellenbosch.
The organisation is a female initiative that started with a group of 5 young women in the Stellenbosch community who had a desire to reach into their community and help those in need from nutritional meals, warm winter items and sanitary items.
As the project grew the neighbours, friends and family had to step in. the goal of this organisation is connecting with young females in the community and restore their self-worth, value and to remind the youth of their potential and to chase their dreams
