A horticulturist by profession and a community leader at heart, Nkele Galedzana is involved in a number of programmes that help economically disadvantaged communities. These include distributing food parcels and sanitary towels, and providing essential mentoring for young people.
Galedzana’s love for helping people, especially the youth of South Africa, is what drives her. From organising blanket drives and soup kitchens to tutoring and hosting career expos, she builds a strong sense of family with the young people she works with, many of whom are struggling with drug abuse.
She strongly believes that any situation can be changed, no matter how impossible it may initially seem. Galedzana says: “I want to see the youth of this country mentally and emotionally stable. A South Africa filled with leaders — not just any leaders, but selfless community builders. A South Africa filled with love, and a South Africa for all.”
Never underestimate yourself. You’re a winner, and you’re able to change any situation.
