Personal message

My name is Ndileka Mandela, and I am the CEO of the Thembekile Mandela Foundation. After reading the recent articles on the situation regarding the Tsolo Pupils in the Eastern Cape, I have decided to take action and set up a crowdfunding page to raise funds in order to provide these children with a safe space to learn.

The pupils of the Tsolo school are writing their exams in dilapidated classrooms or outside! I am aware that the government has committed to providing a solution for the students and teachers, but how long do they need to wait? 

If we come together as South Africans, I feel that we can come up with a solution that we can implement in a speedy fashion. If we can raise R1 000 000, we can contribute towards the building of at least 1 classroom. 

The Thembekile Mandela Foundation will work alongside BackaBuddy in ensuring that all funds raised through this campaign will be paid directly to the relevant institutions who will improve the structure and provide the children with a safe place to study!
