It’s the last Friday of the month and it’s the aim of We Are The World Blogfest to shine a little light on any darkness in the world or in ourselves by sharing uplifting stories. This gathering takes place once a month.
In 2015 Mfundo Radebe, a matric student at the time, received a full scholarship to attend Harvard university in the USA. Radebe promised that he would use the opportunity to better South Africa in the future.
Radebe is due back in May and has already started his plan to make a difference. He has set up an initiative to assist underprivileged learners across the country. Using the relationships he has created while in the USA he has been able to set up an important network back here in South Africa which will ensure that the underprivileged learners thrive.
A quote from Mfundo Radebe:
“I recognise that where I am today is through hard work, yes, but it is also about luck. That is why I think that every child should be given an equal playing field so that they can be the best that they can be.”
“This is what we owe every single South African child as a country. It feels like a deep personal commitment that I think we should all undertake.”
Such an amazing vision and profound words from a youngster who was born into poverty, endured suffering and abuse…but still persevered…
