Where is Thabang now?

Thabang Maake, a 25-year-old from SOS Mamelodi, is a phenomenal human being. He has an enquiring mind and a strong interest in understanding how countries manage their challenges. We think he’s going places – and in fact, he’s already gone to quite a few places!

In 2017, Thabang travelled to Ethiopia for a Youth Empowerment Summit; and in 2019 he went to Tanzania as part of the Young Global Pioneers (YGP) Talent Network.

“I promised myself that I would grab every opportunity to travel. It can only help my self-development and growth,” he says.

Thabang is in a second year Public Administration and Communications student at UNISA, while still being the primary caregiver and bread-winner for two younger siblings.

We thank donors for investing in a new generation of leaders like Thabang. South Africa will be a better place because of it!
