Celebrating “Amadodakazi Asebukhosini” – The beauty of a Daughter

Dear Supporters and World,

On the 27th April 2021 Ammish Community Development hosted Amadodakazi Asebukhosini for our Teenagers (Celebrating the Beauty of a daughter) at Arthur Ash Tennis Hall at Central Western Jabavu in Soweto. Let us begin with the following scripture:

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

1 Peter 3:3-4

The Story of Amadodakazi Asebukhosini

The story behind the Event is to embrace our daughters from 9-17 years who attended the Event. Amatsitsi from Ukukhanya youth production together with Umama wezi Intombi (Older Zulu Women) from Zola township in Soweto were dancing and singing with pride for our girls. The Reed dance is an annual Event which aims to celebrate and unify nations as well as honouring nation virgin maidens. In light of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. This cultural practise hopes to curb this epidemic by promoting a culture of respect for young women

Who vow to remain virgins until marriage, it also fosters self-esteem, strengthens community, and provides a strong sense of cultural identity essential for Nation-building. It is all about teaching morals and good Behaviour to young girls. Also teaches young girls, who have to be virgins in order to participate about how yhey should act as grown women. As part of promoting Celibasy until marriage and the girl to respect their bodies.
