THE Tongaat community is extremely proud of local lass Snothando Mzobe who has been accepted as a Mandela Washington Fellow.

Snothando grew up in Hambanathi and attended Tongaat Secondary High School where she matriculated in 2006.

The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, begun in 2014. The Fellowship provides the young leaders, who have been selected from 49 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, with the opportunity to hone their skills at a US college or university with support for professional development after they return home.

The Fellows, who are between 25 and 35 years, have established records of accomplishment in promoting innovation and positive impact in their organisations, institutions, communities, and countries.

Snothando was selected on the basis of her huge contribution to Protec, both as a role model and initiating the Protec Post School Programme, which ensures that Protec students have the necessary mentorship, guidance and support to integrate successfully into the working world and lead meaningful and productive adult lives.

The seven-week programme starts in June and culminates with a summit in Washington DC where the fellows will meet with global leaders including the President of the USA.
