Pippa Hudson chose to work with the Nonceba Counselling Centre in Khayelitsha. On the 24th of February Pippa spoke to a woman from the centre who was in need of help.

Pippa pleaded to Cape Talk listeners to come to the rescue. Generous donations from listeners made it possible for the young woman's dreams to come true.

Kieno Kammies and SA Teen Entrepreneur Foundation

The vision of the Foundation is to cultivate and promote an entrepreneurial spirit among high school learners across South Africa through interactive seminars, workshops, conferences, and exhibitions.
