Mrs Mimona Fowkes was live in studio from her organisation [ Phenomenal Womens Arts ] talking about her creative talents that her organisation offer.
|Mrs Mimona Fowkes|
Mrs Fowkes is from Woodlands (Mitchells plain), she began this organisation when she walked up to a woman that was sitting with beads and asked if she could help out, she wanted to teach the community her skills of embroidery, crochet, painting on fabric. She learnt these skills all by herself because schools do not teach these skills anymore; she gives these classes free of charge and sometimes uses her own material for her classes.

Mrs Fowkes approached the community newspaper to put her story, she believes strictly on self-empowerment especially women, and creating opportunities by providing people with these skills, Mrs Fowkes will be going for an operation but has no doubt that she will be able to bounce back.
Phenomenal Womens Arts organisation is not about the money, it is the love she has for her talent, and Mrs Fowkes is a very firm parent who raised her children up with respect now with her organisation they motivate children and drug addicts in her community.
