LEPHALALE — Take Joy Foundation together with Schwarzkopf Professional Mrs S.A finalist 2016, Ephy Mathebula, and partners, are going all out to build the legacy of the former president Dr. Nelson Mandela.
They say they are committed to working towards a common goal of a nation where all South Africans will live a better life with proper shelter, food and quality education.
While Dr. Mandela devoted 67 years to social and political activism, he only asked for 67minutes of a day once a year to make a difference in someone else’s life by spreading Ubuntu, selflessness and love. Ubuntu is an African philosophy centred on oneness of humanity thus encouraging respect for diversity, promoting dignity, peace, good health and prosperity.
On Saturday 23 July Take Joy Foundation visited Boabab Helping Hands home in Onverwacht. They organized a fun day with a mini braai together with the volunteers and Ephy. They also provided 15 families with food parcels and sanitary towels from Catchvibe initiative.
On Sunday 24 July they had a fun day at Morwe Village and Ephy enjoyed playing some of the indigenous games with the kids. The day was all about awareness of orphan care and adoption. There are about 15 orphans adopted by Take Joy Foundation from its first project. They were also supplied with food parcels. Ephy had a talk with the girls who were present – some of whom are orphans. She touched on issues such as HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnancy and education.
