Hi, I am Niki Moore and I am from KwaZulu-Natal, Durban.
Lunga is a young man who arrived on my doorstep three weeks ago looking for a job as a gardener and general factotum. I took him on.
Within half an hour I realised that this was no ordinary young man, and I asked him why he was working as a gardener when he was far too smart for an unskilled job.
Then he told me that he had been studying IT part-time through CCSA (Commerce and Computer College of SA). Due to lockdown last year he had lost his job as a mechanic and had been forced to suspend his studies halfway.
He was currently trying to keep his body and soul together while trying to make enough money to finish his education.
My name is Niki Moore, I am a journalist, and I want to help this young man. He is a remarkable youngster, and it is a tragedy that he is deprived of fulfilling his potential due to a lack of funds.
For him to attend college next year, full time will cost R10 000. I want to raise this R10 000 so that he can do his next year of study, and get a job that is worthy of his skills. He is keen to work in computer technology and IT, but needs to finish his schooling.
He will need the R10 000 by November so that he can register for his final year in 2022.
Our country needs more people like Lunga. He has the talent, he has the ability, he has the attitude. All he needs is a little hand-up, and he will be destined for great things.
