A year ago, my Foundation started operating. I remember August the 9th 2018 like it was yesterday!😭😭😭😭 I remember how I had no sponsors and I had to beg my parents to assist me and cut from my expenses to be able to get my foundation up and running. When I visited both those families, they were literally in tears and all I got was “Inkosi ikubusise”.I never took those words lightly because I knew very well ukuthi ayesuka ekujuleni kwezinhliziyo.
A year later the foundation is still doing great all thanks to @missmadlala_ for being part of all the collaborations. I remember how others concluded that within six months I will be over the whole NPO thing not even understanding that the motive behind this foundation was not to play games nor boost my ego, but to make sure someone goes to bed with food In their stomach, someone has clothes to wear and someone has a memorable matric dance despite their financial state at home. Deep down I know this foundation will do wonders, with the right support it shall go places.❤️🙏I do want to take this opportunity and thank everyone who has donated to the foundation, we are a year old today.
