Anele Mda is a gender and social activist, whose interest for societal betterment led to a formation of an Non-Governmental Organisation at young age of 18, called Creative Young Women and Growing Girls Group.
This NGO focused on both awareness and education programmes on HIV & AIDS, Home based Care as well as caregivers to
destitute and neglected AIDS infected patients etc. On the aspect of growing girls the organization was focused on issues of teenage pregnancy, teenage prostitution and child headed homes etc.
Through this NGO, a health information centre was opened in the town of Port St. Johns first ever, this centre was a one stop shop which catered for pre-and post-testing counselling, giving HIV and AIDS information, orphanage and abuse victims shelter. The work of the centre was led by Anele and she made immense contribution daily to its work.
Through the length and breadth of South Africa she traversed in fundraising and speaking publicly about the need to end the HIV and AIDS stigma, she captured USA based rape survivor, Gender Activist and former journalist, Charlene Smith who profiled the work done by Anele through the organization.
Through this breakthrough massive funders started pouring support, strengthening the work of the centre in a massive way. The work of the centre propelled government to come on board and play its role in providing support and ensuring continual benefit to the needy communities that were being serviced by the centre.

Anele has now started Motivational talks that are inspired by her own life experiences after completing Public Speaking coaching which she believe is a story that must be told especially to help strengthen those who come from extremely disadvantaged backgrounds and considering giving up in life.
Her Motivational talks are a healing method which allows people, women in particular to face their past hardships and rise beyond their scars and strive to succeed in life against all odds.
