PHUMLANIM Foundation held its prize giving ceremony at the Margate Hotel last Friday, where the foundation awarded the Mr and Miss Gamalakhe 2016 winners.

The awards were presented by the former Miss Gamalakhe, Sthobile Hlophe, who reminded the winners what it means to be crowned Mr and Miss Gamalakhe.

She emphasised that the pageant is a community project to instil and teach a culture of responsibility among the youth,

Phumlani Mzobe, foundation founder, said as part of the prizes the winners were given the opportunity of doing community service and also going for a photo shoot and he thanks the prize sponsors.

Mzobe said the foundation is a vehicle that can be used by young people to make an impact in their community.

“The foundation is about development, empowerment, grooming and mentorship.”

Last year the foundation had a problem when a prize sponsor pulled out at the last minute and one winner never received their prize.

“I am grateful of this year’s prize sponsors as everything went smoothly. Last year we had a problem with one of the sponsors, who promised to sponsor a cellphone, but pulled out at the last minute,” said Mzobe.

Mzobe congratulated the winners and wished them all the best for the future.
