Ho Chi Minh said that “to reap a return in 10 years, plant trees. To reap a return in 100 years, cultivate the people”. While I may not live till I am 100 years old, I strive to contribute to an enabling education system that supports educators and learners, and helps them to fulfil their human potential.
“I am proud to work for an organisation such as the Zenex Foundation, which is responsive to the needs of the poorest people of South Africa. Our collective efforts will help build a nation with dignity, and one that cares for our shared humanity.”
