What We’ve Been Doing
Our Journey So Far
As a teenager who had no sense of direction, Pride Factor has helped me find myself; to find my purpose, and has kept me out of trouble. They have taught me lessons in life that I couldn't possibly have learnt at schoolSthembiso Mciro
I am a young woman living with a disability called cerebral palsy. Pride Factor has truly transformed my life, and helped me view things differently within my own community and country.Emily

Ever since I enrolled into the Pride Factor programme, my life has been filled with positivity. Through their lessons I've learned ways to gain confidence, courage and the ability to think about what I need to do next, in order to realise my hopes for the future.Q-Sha
Pride Factor has inspired me to want more from life and their life skills programme has encouraged me to work harder for what I want. It has been such a major pleasure so far and I’ve had the BEST experience, and I know it will benefit me throughout my life!Jabulani Masinga
My honest feedback about the one I did is that it was a very educational, creative and extraordinary online course which I found myself glued up into when I was doing it.Mamello
I like how the Pride Factor courses are structured and how Dene and Ms Candice Modiselle made it entertaining by acting it all out first and integrating it with questions in between.Miss Makhanya
