A Cape Town woman is on a mission to encourage the spirit of Ubuntu in an uncommon way.

Maalikah Jacobs manufactures t-shirts with various words opposing hate printed on them.

No Hate was born out of frustration of the chaos we face every day. As a nation we are divided, now more than ever. It is about humanity and how we have lost our way as human beings. No Hate is about rebuilding a broken nation, one t-shirt at a time,” Jacobs said.

With the t-shirts, Jacobs said she aims to promote a tolerant society that is proud of the diverse cultures.

“We need to stand together as a nation, united in a common goal; to make South Africa a better place for all and our future generations.”

With only having started the project earlier this year, Jacobs said that the reception has been overwhelming.

“Luckily, I have an amazing support system, so everyone wants to get involved. It is amazing, all my friends and family have offered to get involved in the project.”

The thought behind this project was aimed at tackling racism, but Jacobs and her husband decided to also address xenophobia; homophobia; and bullying among other things.

“I have seen so much good in people of all races, religions and nationalities; so many people wanting to make a difference but not knowing what to do or how it will be received. I hope I am giving them a platform to be able to be part of the change.”

Proceeds will go towards buying protective gear for the u.8 team at the Hout Bay Football Club.

Jacobs said she thought of making this team a beneficiary because she saw the need when the team played against her son’s team and kept getting hurt, but kept pushing through the match.

The t-shirts are available for sale at R190 through Jacobs’s social media pages.V For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/nohatesa/
