SEEING that many South African youth don’t have many opportunities after completing their matric due to a lack of financial resources inspired Sabelo Mabida to start an NPO to provide skills development to those in need.Mabida’s NPO, Multibenefit Organisation, is a non-profit organisation that equips the people of Molweni, especially the youth, with the skills to acquire their learner’s license, farming skills, and business mentorship.In explaining why he started this NPO, Mabida said that when he matriculated he was faced with the problem of not being financial stable, to the point that his family couldn’t afford to pay for his university fees. “I was faced with an ordeal of not being able to go to the university due to our financial situation and I thought to myself: What I can do to change that situation?” he explained.Rather than going around complaining about his situation, the young man came up with a solution to try and help others who are also going through the same problem. “I knew that complaining wasn’t going to help me, because I knew that other people are also going to have the same issue.” “I registered the organisation last year, and I use farming to earn an income, to take the people to write their learner’s test.“I also teach farming skills and ways to save money,” Mabida said. He said that his initiatives go a long way in equipping those less fortunate to be self sufficient. In conclusion, he advised the youth to not always point out problems, rather they should come out with solutions, even if they must sponsor it with their own money. “Also, I’m urging the matriculants to not do anything to their uniforms; they could donate it to their schools because there are people who might need it,” he concluded.Molweni residents are urged to contact Mabida to donate their school uniforms at 076 9525 298.
