The Adam Goodwill Ambassadors led by Mihlali Adam from St Georges School and Litha Adam from Grey High School, once again went out of their way in changing lives of needy learners.

“We basically used our savings to purchase shoes. We thought of changing lives of our fellow learners who are vulnerable. We wish to make them smile again,” said Litha Adam, who initiated the Adam Goodwill ambassadors.

“Indeed, we want to restore ubuntu and the learners’ dignity by doing good. Particularly to those who are still at school as they are our future leaders, who have to deal with poverty.

“We want to bring hope, as with God anything is possible and by faith you can have a better future. As Tata Madiba said, education can free us all,” said Mihlali Adam.

The principal of Nomathamsa Primary School, Mr Maqungo, said, “We are grateful to these young boys for helping our children. The unemployment rate in Despatch is very high and our learners really appreciate receiving these shoes, as well as shirts, trousers and white rugby shorts.

“These Adam Goodwill Ambassador boys are really living a meaningful life from a very young age. We really appreciate them.”

The Adam Goodwill Ambassadors wish to send words of gratitude to their friends who donated shirts, shorts and trousers and in helping make the day a success. Also a huge thank you to their parents, Nomalungelo and Sandile Adam, for teaching them to do good in life.
