Improving healthcare and education in poverty-stricken communities


The S.A Medical and Education foundation is a non-profit organisation that does high impact education projects focusing on science, maths and technology.


The role aim is to improve healthcare and education in poverty-stricken communities through high-impact, focused projects. Without intervention by YOU and the SAME Foundation, these communities won’t be able to receive the healthcare and education,  and technology that they deserve. "Together we can make a real, sustainable difference" they said.


Each year SAME Foundation selects one of their beneficiaries as a recipient of their Mandela Day initiative where they bring together schools, businesses and celebrities to paint as many classrooms as possible on the day. 

This year they have selected Manzomthombo Secondary School in Cape Town as the recipient for their Mandela Day Initiative. They have completed 4 science classes, 5 general classes, 1 computer lab, 1 library and 2 lavatories at the beginning of last year and believe that in giving learners access to the best possible learning resources, they are giving them an opportunity to reach their full potential and in doing so break the cycle of poverty through quality education.

TY TAKES MUSIC TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!

Tyrone aka Ty, is a rap artist that resides in Strandfontein Village. He is an independent artist who works with other independent producers.


He recorded all of my music in Lotus River, Goodwood and Strandfontein, which are all homemade studios. His music speaks to and for youth who go through everyday struggles such as gangsterism and  unemployment. Ty's music is a mixture of modern day commercial sounds with true lyricism. He raps in English which is infused with about 20-30% Afrikaans. He feels like he could bring something new to the table in terms of topics I address, and authentic rhyme schemes.

He  has on stage experience as well, since he has performed at various shows and carnivals such as the community chess and at different night clubs for open mic competitions and gigs.

He  plans to push the sound of Cape Town music forward in his own unique way and build
relationships with intelligent artists and producers who share the same passion.

Amber talks "DESIGNS"

The love for clothing started in primary school . She always found herself busy drawing pieces of clothing and cutting out swatches from her mothers old table cloths and sometimes from her own clothing . she remembered the day her mom first bought a doll and she started making clothing for the doll . "I have always been fascinated with fashion and clothing making"  she  said.

Her mom wanted her to become an accountant and dad wanted her to become a lawyer . 

"I remember, many nights that year I would cry because of the pressure that was placed on me by my mother and father . eventually I ended up choosing my subjects , which was Business , Cat AND Accounting.Grade 12 came and again I found myself crying myself to sleep , because now the pressure was back . Because I was heading into the GROWN UP world . Over the course of 5 yrs , I've received some many diplomas , served in the RCL for 3 of the 5 yrs . Been on the matric council , and I served on the SGB ( SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY ) for 2 yrs . I think this also led to my parents being so hard on me , regarding my career choice . At first , my mom and dad wasn't so happy with me studying fashion design but after , they saw the work I produced in only the first 6 months of university and the determination I had for fashion".


She's currently a first year student at CPUT Cape Town campus , in the design faculty studying fashion design . So far they've only made or been taught to make a skirt . She self taught herself how to make other prices of clothing like hoodies , joggers , bra-lettes , pants , tops etc . She managed to get an old sewing machine from her neighbor and been doing her side hustle for about 2 months now . "I have a page on IG called blvckbirdbyaed and she's my baby . I am using the page as platform to showcase my pieces and get peoples feedback . I encourage interaction and people to direct message me on my social media pages"  she said, as we all agree that media plays a huge role in fashion.

MOSTING ENTERTAINMENT


It started when 3 friends that were working in the same industry but in different departments had an idea to join forces. This is where, Mosting Entertainment formulated.

Mosting Entertainment is a brand and lifestyle endorsing free spirits, designers, artists, youth and beyond with a platform of leisure. Liberating generations through music, entertainment, clothing lines and so much more!

"This brand takes pride in social development and most certainly change, mainly aiming to create a
platform for all that screams growth, change, vision and execution." says Pumzy Pityana.

This entity also creates a wave of the new market to venues, redefining spaces to collaborate with
relevant generations, along with their brands to maintain revenue and elevation.

These ideas were inspired from different paths of life, indifference's and what is all shared
amongst each other, to create solidarity and initiatives leading to growth and success.

Hoppers

Prominent nonprofit in Manenburg will be holding their second annual clothing drive for the homeless this Saturday, July 7 in Cape Town. Hoppers is a non-profit organization based out of one of the most crime-ridden townships in Cape Town, Manenburg. The two representatives of the organization, Shafiek and Yousouf, joined us in the studio this morning.

Hoppers at Bush Radio

Shafiek described that organization was born out of a desire to serve people who are homeless. He said that one day he saw a homeless person on the side of the road and pulled over, realized it was one of his relatives. When he shared this experience with his friends, they all realized that everyone has someone in their family who is homeless or poor.

So, Hoppers was founded. It focuses on empowering youth to reject a life of gangsterism and instead stay in school. Yusuf said although the youth are the most important demographic, they serve all ages of people. He said that because everyone is human, they deserve to have their basic human needs met.

The Beanie and Blanky Drive will put extra clothes and food into the hands of people who are truly in need. Shafiek and Yusuf personally deliver many of these resources. They both are extremely passionate about the organization and encourage everyone to come out and support. Even if you do not have anything to donate, you can come to the Grand Parade during the drive. The organization is also welcoming people to join them in sleeping overnight on the streets to understand better how the homeless live.

LAQUEEN

Laqueen hails all the way from Macassa,  is aspiring to be a singer and rapper.

She attends Macassa high and  is currently doing grade 11. When she finishes school her main back up plan is to study psychology. At the moment she's working on an album that will have up to 16 songs and ill be released by December.

 Her focus is more on rapping than singing. One of her influences for going in to the music industry was listening to Rihanna, which motivated her in steeping into the music life. She mainly writes about things happening in and around her school, to educate the rest of South Africa who do not know that part of the world.

She encourage everyone to strive in  what they are passionate about.
