Women’s Month 2018
This year we were inspired by a women’s month initiative by Valcare, a non-profit community platform in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley.
During August they will celebrate one remarkable women every day by posting a wonderful picture. Sonya Olivier Photography took beautiful portraits of each lady at the lovely Bon Louis – Family Bistro in Paarl.
Follow the Valcare Facebook page during Women’s month, as each day a new Protea of the Valley will be announced and honoured.
