Keeping dreams alive
Newly founded non-profit organisation, Dream Alive Foundation did their part on Mandela Day at Masizakhe Children's Home in Mdantsane. Foundation secretary Asive Sibenza said they taught the children about late iconic statesman Nelson Mandela.
“Our main aim as the foundation is to bring change to the lives of the poor, while tackling socio-economic challenges in the communities.
“We plan to do this by helping the youth realise their dreams through motivation, career awareness, and mentorship. That is what we did on that day: we shared the knowledge we had about Mandela with the children, cooked a meal, and also brought clothes and groceries,” Sibenza said.
She said the home accommodated 72 children.
Sibenza said they received most of the clothes from fellow Walter Sisulu University students and BlackToti label founder, Azola Mtebele, who donated printed T-shirts.
“The event was a success, we were satisfied,” Sibenza said.
