After having completed a PhD in social science, Rethabile had a dream: provide first-class education to girls within a township where promiscuity, alcohol, drugs and the related violence can create untenable situations for families.
Through the incredible determination of Rethabile, a Khayeltisha girl herself, 140 girls now attend the Molo Mhlaba school (Hello World! in the Xhosa language).
And the plan is to open 10 more in 10 years.
ACT will support this ambitious initiative...and needs your help to do so !
Mgadi is a confirmed artist living in the largest township of Cape Town, Khayelitsha.
His project is to provide first-level art courses to keep kids off the street after school hours in his neighbourhood. With no financial means this idea proved impossible to realize.
So ACT stepped in.
Mgadi has gained recognition within the community. He successfully introduces kids to a completely new form of expression.
For youth and women to replicate the programme model in their respective communities; ensuring longevity of it and its self-sustainability as well as creating self-employment and generating income for themselves and for others.
We believe that there is a demand for these magnificent hand-made pieces for conference, corporate events, universities and post-graduate courses.
You will soon be able to purchase them online on our website.
