With bullying and body shaming  on the rise, if there was ever a time that the World needed love , that time is now. Love can come in many forms, according to Mother Theresa it could be in a smile, for me love is saying ' what do you need'.

Imagine my delight a few months ago when I came across a campaign of love headed by LeAnne Dlamini ,South African singer, songwriter, mother, ,wife, entrepreneur and all round powerhouse.  End Girl Hate, an empowering campaign started on social media.  I chatted to LeAnne to find out what inspired her to start this initiative.

Q:How did the End Girl Hate campaign come into being?

‘End Girl Hate was born through my passion & love for women & girls. I wanted to start encouraging women, empowering them & letting them know that it’s okay for us to support one another & do so freely! With no jealousy attached. And it all started on social media.’

Q: What is your purpose/vision/mission with this campaign?
‘I call End girl Hate The Sisterhood Movement, and my dream is for the movement to spread across our nation & beyond the shores of South Africa & Africa. I want women to have each others backs & feel the love & support from one another no matter who we are or where we are!’
