90% of South African schools do not have libraries! With the help of my MMI colleagues and friends, I have decided to make a small difference and get involved in the education of ordinary South African Children.
Climbing Everest has been for extraordinary people, Saray Khumalo, a Multiply executive, a mother and an ordinary African girl has taken on the challenge. The Everest journey started in 2014 when her Everest journey was halted in April by the worst Everest disaster, which killed 16 Sherpas a few meters from her tent. This curve ball made me come back home a lot more determined to work harder for the 2015 Everest attempt. Giving up when there is so much work in our society was simply not an option.
At this point No, black African woman has ever summited the highest mountain in the world at 8845 in altitude! My challenge is to attempt this task as an ordinary citizen putting my body and mind to the utmost test while you help me build one library at a time.
‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ by Nelson Mandela. Lets therefore put our hands together and make a small difference by taking libraries to less privileged schools because the power is in our hands!
