Ankarien Oelofse

Founder & CEO

I am the founder and CEO of Table View Angels NPC – a non-profit organization based on a mentorship model. The concept is unique in that it matches multiple mentors to a mentee to provide maximum benefit. Our divisions include assisting vulnerable families, trauma support, therapy, protecting children, Youth entrepreneurship, GBV support and school feeding program. This is inclusive in terms of accepting all individuals for an all-encompassing mentoring program with the vision of ‘A Hand Up, not a Handout’. All my philanthropic efforts have been directed to empowering, influencing, and energizing women. I fight hard to remove the stigma of mental illness and to help those suffering through life hardships.

Through my own life struggles (YouTube link attached), survival and overcoming, life enables me to mentor and advocate for not just women’s success, but all who are vulnerable and professional fulfilment as well as the care of the vulnerable. I am also a member of City of Cape Town Ward committee 107 where I advocate for all vulnerable groups. This is the decade for women to drive change.

Therefore, it is now so important to empower women to be seen, heard, and valued and I feel that I encompass all of this.

 

We also need role models – to learn from each other and to help motivate others. It is time our city acknowledges this and offer rewards for those going beyond – stop apologizing and people-pleasing. We receive no funding from our government or City and must constantly reinvent ourselves to live our passion. To build a community which could be our support network – a safe space and youth centre to share learnings and own our fears.

A woman is who defies all odds, reverses stereotypes and is not afraid of showing up as her true authentic self. Unapologetic and fiercely confident in her abilities. Never let anyone tell you, you can’t do something because you are a girl – I have dedicated my life to serving my community. Nothing is impossible for me. Table View Angels NPC that has fed and clothed 1000’s of vulnerable families over the years. I look at families in need in a holistic way and offers counselling, youth empowerment, trauma support, child safety care and GBV support.

I have recently become an Ambassador Against Bullying winning the Western Cape region for Catwalk models and the Anti-Bullying Academy and look forward to being s spokesperson for them. I have also been crowned as Advocate against GBV which is a subject I don’t take lightly. Currently running as a finalist in South African Heroes Award 2023 and my future vision is to write an autobiography about Survival and Overcoming.

 

My Passions go deep: Inspiring, Equipping, Motivating, Encouraging, Educating and Uplifting Women in general of all Cultures, Religions and Walks of Life. I love doing community work by assisting young women and girls becoming their best version, spreading kindness, and empowering each other. I firmly believe in
Gender Equality and that women can bring to the table a feminine uniqueness that can complement the male dominated industries without the loss of the masculinity of men and rather collaborate with men in building a powerful relationship for the future benefit of our younger generations.
