Written by: Sithandwa Ngwetsheni

Nishen Naidoo,Adam Begg,Stuart MacDonald and Fabrice Nahimana have been selected as our Lead SA Youth Heroes for January.

The 4 boys took on an amazing initiative by raising funds to support 67 kids in Masiphumelele for their grade 1 year. The boys through their own initiative managed to raise R40000.

During their school holidays they spent some time packing starter packs for the 67 kids. This included a full school uniform, A backpack with school stationery & a packet with eats.

The youth heroes aim to continue this project into the future. Even though 3 of the young men are in matric this year , they aim to dedicate some of their time to advance their project of raising more funds to support the initiative.
