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.

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.
