I grew up in the rural community of Bergnek in Limpopo, South Africa. As there is no employment back home, I now live and work in Johannesburg.
Determined to better the circumstance for women, youth and children of my home town, I am the co-founder of Bergnek Community Projects Cooperative. The coop helps those who live there to design and launch projects that develop, connect and empower skills from within.
My inspiration comes from the loss of my first son who – because the closest ambulance was 40km away – died of treatable food poisoning. My ultimate goal is for a health clinic in Bergnek itself.
