Leadership For Girls Academy Graduation Ceremony


Here’s to the leaders of tomorrow

Eskilz College will be hosting a Graduation Ceremony for its pilot project and one of its kind programme in South Africa called The Leadership For Girls Academy which is also a passion project, on Saturday 27 October 2018 starting at 11:00 am.

This auspicious event, which will be held at North Haven Country Estate, Plot 422 Fleetwood Ave, Northriding Estates, Northriding, will be the first graduation ceremony since the launch of this programme in January 2018.

Eskilz College launched the Leadership for Girls Academy at the beginning of 2018. This project is aimed at addressing the gender gap in leadership roles, leadership is not a simple career choice.

“To lead you must be molded, exposed and guided on this journey,” says Kamal Timmal, CEO of Eskilz College and Founder of The Leadership For Girls Academy. This is the thinking behind this dynamic project which recruited 16 young girls, aged 16-18 years-old from local schools in Gauteng, Allen Glen High School, and Cosmo City Secondary School 1.

These young girls were chosen through a selection process that gave us the best indication of those who have the willingness and drive to join this journey to leadership. It is our hope that after each 12-month programme we would have catapulted 16 young girls into eff­ective, influential and powerful leaders in South Africa who use this platform to make positive changes in the world.

During the event, the young leaders will be presenting their community projects which they have founded as part of the programme and will be piloting as groups and as individuals long after they have left the programme. They will be presenting these projects to business owners and CEOs who will be adopting, sponsoring and/or funding these projects and investing in these young leaders.

To join this event, contact Akhona Valashiya at 0100300080 or email For more information about Leadership For Girls Academy, visit
