Dlalisa Moyeni Foundation CEO Tumisang Skhosana urged Matric learners of Jafta Mahlangu to start focusing on their studies seriously now, even though this is the beginning of the academic year.

Dlalisa Moyeni Foundation visited the school on Tuesday morning in order to give stationary to Matric learners there and also motivate and encourage them in their studies.

They donated 200 stationery including snack to matric learners.

Skeem Saam actor Patrick Seleka was also at the school to motivate learners in their studies.

Dlalisa Moyeni founder Bongani Skosana also took an opportunity and motivates and encourage the learners.

Skhosana also encouraged learners who are struggling academically to also do their best.

“Not all of us are A students but we would like to encourage those who are challenged to make sure that they do their best in their own path,” she said.

“We are going to adopt 200 boys and enroll them in our programme through which we will be mentoring them on a weekly basis socially and academically.

We will take 50 boys from each grade at the school,” announced Skhosana.

Skhosana explained that the main aim of Dlalisa Moyeni Foundation is to take care of boys and that today’s programme if awarding stationary items to all Matriculants including girl’s learners was just an extra activity.

Skhosana said although it was the first time that Dlalisa Moyeni had visited the school, the school’s boy learners had attended the foundation’s annual conference in November last year.

“Our presence here today at the school is to also fortify our relationship with the boy learners at the school,” she said.

“I know that black men don’t have it easy generally.

We want them to change the narrative that men are trash.

We want them to realise that they can be the men that they want to be.

But it starts with them,” said Skhosana.

The school’s acting principal Philemon Masemola said he was ecstatic to have Dlalisa Moyeni at the school.

He revealed that Bongani Skosana founder of the Dlalisa Moyeni was his student in 1999 and passed with five functions in 1999.

“The stationary that has been donated by Dlalisa Moyeni will help learners to have extra stationary as they use a lot of such material in their studies.

“I think Dlalisa Moyeni’s donation will also motivate learners from disadvantaged backgrounds to have a reason to wake up in the morning and come to school,” he explained.
