The campaign visited 13 schools in the Pietermaritzburg area.

“The schools were asked to nominate Grade 11 pupils who are making a difference in their community, so it is a very special set of young ladies we were looking for. We received quality nominations from 12 schools and are proud to announce the following 20 semi-finalists,” said campaign administrator, Lara Edmonds.

The campaign focuses on community service and this year the young ladies will be united in outreach for the Mama Ntombi Community Project (MNCP), supported by the Community Chest.

“Each young lady will be challenged to call her school to support her cause with donations of food stuffs, second- hand clothing, books and toys in a campaign called ‘Open your Hearts and Fill the Chest’,” said Ursuhla Govender. - Supplied
