This is the first time that SACAP has participated in the Cell C Take A Girl Child to Work Day - Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiative, which Council identified as part of its transformation agenda to introduce young female learners to the architectural profession.

SACAP approached Athlone Girls High School, who selected four Grade 12 learners, Karabo Mathlake, Palesa Sewatlwadu, Modiegi Mashamaite and Senanisiwe Moyo.
The learners were selected based on their interest in the architectural profession and creative abilities.

The programme introduced the learners to a day-in-the-life of the architectural profession and it was divided into two parts, with two learners spending the day at Moiloa Office of Architecture + Design (MOAD) and two learners at SACAP offices.

They all commented that they found the experience to be insightful, life changing and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that should not be missed!. Karabo Mathlake said that she was now considering studying architecture as a career.

SACAP would like to invite the profession to become more actively involvement in the next event planned in 2016.

SACAP extends its gratitude to Tshego Moiloa and the team of Moiloa Office of Architecture + Design (MOAD), Athlone Girls High School and SACAP staff for making the day special and memorable for everyone concerned.
