On 30 May 2012, MasterCard Worldwide joined hands with Junior Achievement South Africa (JASA) to enable four hundred and fifty female learners from 10 South African schools to take part in Junior Achievement South Africa’s globally recognised entrepreneurship development programme, JA BizVenture. This has been made possible by a R1million donation from MasterCard Worldwide.
At the launch function of this programme, a prominent female celebrity, Lebo Mashile, was invited as the guest speaker. Among other topics, she spoke about grassroots values, which the audience could easily relate to and understood well. In addition, Lebo is also a poet, and she recited one of her writings, which we found very touching and would like to share it with you:
Do share this and inspire your friends and communities!
