Mangwanani’s foundation is its people. It is a company that was founded on the idea of harnessing the natural, inherent ability of previously disadvantaged women, through training, development and empowerment. Mangwanani stands by their values that have guided them through the last 17 years in business.
Their values include social responsibility, sustainable development, and empowerment through job creation. Through uplifting local communities nationally, Mangwanani provides a beautiful African experience infused with Western culture, affording value for money to their clients. To their staff, they continue to facilitate their empowerment and thrive knowing they have made a difference in the lives of other people.
Meet Ntsoaki, a mother of three children
Her husband was the only breadwinner. When Ntsoaki fell pregnant with her third child, she had the urge to help her husband support the family. Ntsoaki approached Mangwanani for massage training. Several weeks later, she was employed. Not only was she able to assist her husband, but she had enough income to help her mother who was looking after her children and siblings. Ntsoaki upskilled herself, learning about customer service, and computers. Ntsoaki is now an assistant branch manager. Most of all, she and her family are happy that Ntsoaki has accomplished so much. Naturally, so too is Mangwanani.
Meet Nono, an extraordinary woman
In 2004, Kedibone Nono Modise, or Nono as we know her, began her work life at Mangwanani. After gaining experience in various departments, she was promoted. Nono worked her way up to becoming the branch manager of the company’s flag-ship branch, Mangwanani River Valley, on the outskirts of Centurion. As the last born, Nono is also the only breadwinner in her family. Mangwanani supported Nono, taking her to new branches around South Africa, and even to the Netherlands. As Nono said: “Mangwanani is a company that empowers and cares about people’s well-being and success. Were it not for employers such as Maeve, Erin, and Moira, who forever believed in me and encouraged me to grow, I would not be where I am today. These ladies are like sisters to me. They have brought out the best in me. They have encouraged me to be a bigger and better person.”
It is through the testimonies of our staff that we are encouraged to hold on to our values, being grateful for the wonderful people who have become our family. Through their indomitable spirits, we find hope for the future of Mangwanani and South Africa, our country. Despite the scourge of the Covid-19 virus, with all the concomitant misery and inconvenience of these trying months, we will remain hopeful. We are certain that we will emerge from this darkness with a new fighting spirit. And to celebrate this, we will be offering innovative packages that will spoil and delight our wonderful clients who are also part of the Mangwnani family.
“We would like to thank all our loyal clients. Your support has given us hope and a better quality of life to many of our staff members. We are ready to welcome you back to our Mangwanani sanctuary as soon as possible. Where once again you will be able to indulge you with a full day, half day, night spa, or even an individual spoil.
