Mighty little Mandla

Personal message

I am a teacher at Westview Special School and started the sport of powerlifting in 2015. I know Mandla Tshwaku as he participates in the sport.
Mandla showed great potential when he started powerlifting in 2018. He qualified for nationals, broke the South African Rhino Records in bench press, squat and deadlift and qualified for the Rhino Worlds in Hungary. Unfortunately, due to lack of funds, he was unable to go.

On 16 March 2019, he broke the SA Rhino records again. I would love for Mandla, who comes from a local township, to show the world what he can do. He works very hard in the gym after school 4 times a week and I feel he deserves to go to the worlds in Slovakia. It would be sad if money is the only thing to prevent him from attending the Rhino Worlds.

The Rhino Worlds is taking place in Slovakia in October 2019.
Mandla would require R35 000 for him to attend the Rhino Worlds. Some of the projected costs include:

Passport - R500
Visa - R1500
Plane Ticket - R12000
Accommodation 7/8 days - R10000
Meals 7/8 days - R2500
Spending Money - R1500
Inzer Waist Belt - R3500
Inzer Suit - R1500

I believe it will be an experience of a lifetime for a boy from the township with learning barriers to compete against the best powerlifters in the world. He will have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world at the event. One never knows where doors could be opened for his future.

The funds will be placed into Westview Special School's bank account and used as required to purchase items and make bookings closer to the time. The principal and myself, along with Mr. Nolan from Rhino Powerlifting will manage this.
