House for Thandi

This is Thandi, a single mum with two kids who lives in a shack in Soshanguwe. Thandi is very dear to me, and as a fellow human, she deserves no less than I am fortunate to have, which a safe house of her own to come home to every night. Thandi works as a helper in my house and looks after my most precious gift, my daughter. Whilst we do everything, we can to take care of her, I cannot change Thandi's living conditions on my own.
Thandi is no different than the millions of helpers who commute to work every day, making an honest living. She's a good person and I value her highly. Economic transformation in our beloved country can only happen when we help and transform the poor.
It is my dream buy her a brick home in Soshanguwe. As individuals we may not be able to transform the lives of millions, but we cannot rely on government to do it either. I want to start by making the difference in a few lives, for Thandi and her children.
Please make a difference and donate what you can – If each South African made a difference to one person, we'd live in a very different South Africa. I haven't told her I'm doing this, for fear I get her hopes up. If this works, I don't know who will cry more, me or her, but I’m determined to try.
