About Anchored Roots

Anchored Roots (Pty) Ltd is based in Cape Town and is a 100% black owned private company established in 2013 by Barbara Jaftha, who is a specialist in the areas of Leadership Development and Human Capital Management.

A key focus area of the business is to provide leadership development training to young women. You may wonder, why women only? As needs were identified locally among our youth, Barbara felt it important to strategically align her development plan to the right audience. As a female contributor, it made sense that the greatest impact in learning could be realised by targeting a female audience.

Based on research, women make up just over 50% of Africa's growing population and currently they under-represent in social, political and economic spheres, especially in Africa. There is an urgent need to develop female leaders. With this in mind, Anchored Roots (Pty) Ltd primary focus is to develop young women across the African continent in the short term with the aim to extend the program globally as we evolve, learn and empower.

Our leadership programs are unique as they are not a "one shoe fits all" approach but are tailored specifically to the current reality of each individual or organizational need.

Project Description

The client wanted a website that was modern and utilised some of the prevailing designs i.e. parallax design.

Technologies Implemented

Joomla 3.x with a free template installed and custom styling applied via CSS.



"Caroline Bowley developed the website for my business, Anchored Roots (Pty) Ltd. Caroline practiced extreme patience and accommodated all my suggested changes in a very professional manner. What I found particularly useful is that Caroline made time to provide me with training to understand the back-end of the website and manage any future editing by myself. Her fees are very reasonable and I recommend her services."
