PHUMLANI M Foundation (PMF) was officially launched in style at the Margate Hotel recently.

Founder Phumlani Mzobe said the launch was a great success.

The foundation has been running motivational talks, co-hosting events and grooming the youth.

Mzobe said the date was specifically chosen because of Women’s Month and as a salute to women who are victims of inferiority, abuse, stress, depression and discrimination.

Parents and families were invited to see what their children had done since the foundation began.

Reverend Mike Effanga graced guests with his devotion that inspired everyone.

A PMF documentary was shown, which highlighted the organisation’s vision, mission and members’ life-changing testimonials leaving guests eager to donate to the foundation to sustain it.

The foundations mentors and partnering stakeholders, Department of Education, Enactus UKZN, Blacksuit Gentlemen’s Club and executive financial manager from the National Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) congratulated the foundation for its existence and sustainability.

Lerato Thwane, a Cogta mentor, provided words of wisdom, indicating how one should surround themselves with successful people in order to be successful.

Dr Euvette Taylor from DUT, an inspirational academic, was guest speaker who motivated the youth with two simple questions - what is your purpose in life and what is your destination?

His talk reminded the youth of the obstacles and challenges faced along the way and how they should act only as a delay, but never as a dead end to one’s journey of success.

Taylor wished PMF all the best and referred to it as an empire with value which will change society for the better.

Mzobe requested foundation members and those who align themselves with its values to stand up to repeat the foundation’s declaration and guests did just that.

Mzobe said he was humbled by the support.

“It was humbling to see the support.

“The declaration symbolised commitment­ and dedication to the foundation’s vision of empowering the youth and the community,” he said.

He extended his gratitude, thanking members and attendees
