The Etafeni Trust was identified for documentation as a success story based on evidence gained within several platforms on interventions addressing SRH vulnerability of young women in the past two years. Amongst its multi-purpose community interventions, the Etafeni Trust launched its Fit For Life, Fit for Work Programme in 2007 (replicated from a similar programme in India) which has since grown rapidly and shown positive impact on the lives of those it reached. Eight times a year, groups of twenty young adults (60% young women) spend four weeks - all day, every day - looking at themselves, their life stories, their goals, their values.
