Celebrating our youth making a difference (Part 2)

This is the second part of our tribute to some of the youth that have inspired us over the past few years, and have been awarded the Inyathelo philanthropy awards for their amazing efforts.

We are starting with Afeefah, who is the youngest ever recipient of one of our awards. At her tender age, Afeefah wasn’t scared to speak up when she noticed a wrong that needed to be righted. Along with our other past recipients, she is an example to us all of what the youth are able to achieve!
