Throughout my life, I have taught myself to appreciate the fact that- “impossible” -is a parable, and in every situation,
the power of the will is able to demolish any monopoly of tragedy

In a country where the best education is only accessed by the well-off, the odds are often stacked against youth from underprivileged
families. However, thanks to BusiM Foundation, this is changing… The narrative of children from impoverished families and communities
ending up on the wrong side of the tracks of society is a common phenomenon in South Africa. Following the scourge of social ills like
unemployment, HIV /Aids and the increase in child-headed families, it has become common to hear about young children who drop out of
school due to the lack of options, support and opportunities. This is one of the reasons for me to venture and embrace the vision of
bringing changes to our youth and our community at large.
BusiM Foundation is one of the civil society organisations that are successfully rewriting the history of our country by contributing
and making a difference to the South African youth and thus our country and the global village at large. Our strategy not only provides
the youth with great education opportunities and world-class facilities, but also primarily empowers the entire family to support the
child and create a healthy, safe and prosperous environment in which they thrive and fulfil their dreams. On the secondary aspect the
community is also empowered through the strategy. The Foundation is also introducing libraries and computer centres in township schools
and Umhawu High School in Engonyameni, Durban is the first recipient of such.
We all have a role to play in improving the lives of our children … I quote “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can
use to change the world” – Tata Madiba
