MAK­ING A DIF­FER­ENCE

DRUM - - Ed's Note -

We of­ten take our sit­u­a­tions for granted and even make fun of other peo­ple’s mis­ery and mis­for­tunes.

I’ve just de­cided to change that. I’ve de­cided to cut short my par­ty­ing and she­been lifestyle.

Wouldn’t it be a bet­ter use of my time if l start teach­ing my neigh­bour­hood kids com­puter skills to help erad­i­cate and al­le­vi­ate poverty?

I’ll be mould­ing fu­ture lead­ers, pre­par­ing them to face this ever-chang­ing world.

Think­ing we need lots of money to be a good in­flu­ence on some­one – to mo­ti­vate and in­spire them – is a mis­take.

No. It starts from the bot­tom of the heart. My dream is to help make my com­mu­nity bet­ter. What’s yours? MCDIVETT KHUMBULANI TSHEHLA, HALF­WAY HOUSE
