Lulwazi Lwethu in partnership with MADA (Moving Ahead Development Agency) came up with a bright idea this June holidays, and identified bright-youngsters who were raised without fathers and who are passionate about Engineering and Technology.

The lads were from all over the country, and the aim was to assist them build their career paths, mentor and equip them to become change agents.

We all know how Cape Town has been infested with gangsterism, drug and alcohol addiction, Lulwazi Lwethu felt the need to make a difference where this is concerned. Five boys were identified and flown to Gauteng to be a part of this event.

The boys were sourced from Sthembele Matiso High; New Eislebeen and Nelson Mandela High Schools. Junior Sigwinta; Vuma Saunders; Yamkela Gqada; Athenkosi Fuku and Siyolise Gqomfa took part in this venture. Lulwazi Lwethu wishes the boys well on their trip and hope that this will make an everlasting change in their lives! You go Boys!!
