Zamokuhle- I can make it beautiful

A Public Service Announcement clip, only 30seconds long. I wrote a poem, imagining what an older sister would tell her younger sibling about living in the Diepsloot Township of Gauteng.

Zama- meaning Beautiful, translates to I can make it beautiful. A name that is very meaningful in this context where girls tend to grow and live in a cycle of poverty, sexual abuse and poor (if any) education.

FOTAD is an NGO that strives to provide girls between the ages of 11-19 a proper education, focussing on maths and science and invites them to dream of the possibility of not only going to varsity, but to enter any work field and career of their choice.
