Miss Limpopo semi-finalist assists the disadvantaged

Seventeen year-old Carol Kgwete has initiated an organisation to assist needy locals. She recently handed out sanitary towels to girls in and around Fetakgomo Tubatse. The grade 11 pupil at Curro Meridian Karino recently started an NGO, Matla a rona, which means “Our strength”.

She told Steelburger/ Lydenburg News, “I started this organisation to promote unity among people of different cultures and races because I believe unity is key.

”One of her recent campaigns, the “Need a towel? I got you”, encourages unity among young teenagers. It teaches them to come together and help a sister in need, especially during that time of the month. She said the provision of sanitary towels goes a long way in restoring the dignity of needy learners who, without the necessary support, are at risk of absenting themselves from school.

Carol thanked family, members, friends and locals who support her in her quest to change lives for the better.

The kindhearted girl is currently a semi-finalist in Miss Limpopo and is ready to represent her home town and inspire unity in the youth of her community. “It’s best to always invest in your own community. All I need is support from the people of Tubatse.”
