THE Nation Builders team spent time at Simphiwe’s Soup Kitchen in honour of the legacy of former President Nelson Mandela last week.

Empowering, inspiring and motivating children to overcome their socio-economic challenges to become successful adults is one of the goals of Nation Builders, a non-profit organisation who have been working within the region over the past few years.

“Children must be encouraged to prioritise education and to develop into strong mature adults who will positively impact communities,” said Nation Builders outreach coordinator Loshini Mohanlal.

The day at Simphiwe’s Kitchen included a time of fun and games with the children as well as an inspirational testimony by Sipho Zungu and Ashen Mohanlal on the importance of education, good behaviour and manners as well as rising up to be nation builders in the future.

Children were encouraged to remain positive despite their challenging circumstances and to strive for a better future. The children were also treated to lunch and some treats.

Simphiwe Maphumula, who oversees the orphanage in Etete, thanked the Nation Builders team for their investment into the lives of the children.

She added that the children looked forward to visitors who would take time to come and spend the day with them.
