Bangwaketsi Ba-rra Motingwe Centre

Mama Dinah ran her centre on Castello Farm in Rysmierbult, Ventersdorp district. Her dedication to empowering women in her community made her a deserving Clover Mama Afrika. She started her needlework project in 2005 and, in conjunction with North West University, Dinah was able to encourage training for more than 20 members. She joined the Clover Mama Afrika project in 2009 and remained active in her pursuit to empower and upskill the women her community. In 2014 she was plagued by illness and her projects was put on hold. Despite this, she could still brighten every room she entered and retained her incredible sense of humour. After a fierce fight and long struggle, she sadly passed away in January 2017. Her passing left a gaping hole in the hearts of those who knew her.
