ZAZA MAHLANGU FOUNDATION: BACK TO SCHOOL DRIVE
The Bill of Rights obliges the South African government to make education available and accessible through reasonable measures. But this is not the only reason why so many student dropped out of school.
The country has seen as many as 750 000 students drop out of school during the pandemic due to various reasons. One of the leading reasons is social discrimination in schools and society!
The Zaza Mahlangu Foundation has identified 80 children from under privileged backgrounds who urgently need assistance in Mpumalanga.
By donating R400 to the cause, you will assist one of the 80 children with:
- School Shoes
- Back Back
- Squeeze Bottle
The children identified are either wearing worn out shoes, flops or no shoes to school and does not have a school case to carry their books to and from school. The squeeze bottle will hopefully aid them in drinking water at school as well as on their way home.

The Zaza Mahlangu Foundation
Was established by Zaza Letsholo in 2018 after the loss of her 3 year old boy, just two days before his birthday, who drowned in the pool at the family home. He was laid to rest on his birthday.
“Kamo’s death inspired me to help the disadvantaged, so in 2018, I started the Zaza Foundation, which is a non-governmental organization that focuses on youth and women empowerment in Mpumalanga. Running it keeps me strong because I can see the positive impact that I’m part of, and it makes me happy. I also openly share my story on social media because it’s helping others come to terms with their loss.” Zaza told Bona Magazine.
