Waste management, planting trees, creating awareness and community education on environmental sustainability are just a few of the initiatives driven by Just Green It, a KwaZulu-Natal-based non-profit headed up by Khulekani Ngcobo. While the self-starter says he regrets dropping out of the Durban University of Technology, he is nevertheless finding fulfillment working in his community of Inchanga, educating rural communities about environmental protection and sustainability. Among his goals as chief executive of the organisation, Ngcobo says he hopes to inspire a generation that will work towards creating a country that takes care of the environment. He is fostering relationships with other like-minded organisations in addition to working with local schools and community leaders, and he’s raising funds to keep Just Green It afloat to benefit more people through the organisation’s work.
My vision is to see the Decolonial Mental Health network being a reliable and trust network for all queer and black African people to find relatable and affordable psychotherapy and counselling services.
