Three young en­trepreneurs see so­lu­tions where many see prob­lems

It is easy to get swept up in some of the neg­a­tive per­cep­tions sur­round­ing South Africa. Trash men are run­ning around do­ing trash things, celebrity mod­els are clog­ging our time­lines with ques­tion­able views on Pales­tine and then cry­ing when peo­ple take is­sue with them, and petrol costs two kneecaps per litre. While all of this might make you want to reach for the near­est bot­tle of anti-de­pres­sants, the truth is that there are also tal­ented peo­ple do­ing the kind of things that not only keep the cock­les of your heart toasty but that may end up chang­ing the game for huge swaths of peo­ple in need. If you want to keep abreast of just how lu­mi­nous the South African so­cial in­no­va­tion space is at the mo­ment, pay at­ten­tion to these names.
