Various awards were given to management and facilitators as well as the ladies who had completed the programme successfully. Awards included the Fearless Feminist award, Most Promising Leader, and the ‘Tumi Makgabo’ awards amongst others. The ‘Thuli Madonsela’ award, given to the individual who had contributed most to the community service portfolio for the year, went to Khanyisile Mathenjwa.

Paige Winfield was appointed as the TRWLA director for 2018, and Kayleen Smith as the Team Manager. One of the largest TRWLA community service projects this year included the frequent visits to Vukani Mawethu High School in Mamelodi where motivational talks were given to the girls of the school.

TRWLA offers outreach programs that promote education about various topics such as the female body, hygiene, and protection against gender-based violence. Women are encouraged to challenge the status quo and grab opportunities with both hands.

TuksRes encourages both first and second year females in residences to join the academy and learn to become future leaders in society.
