I heard about the Mamelodi Initiative from a friend in the United States.I came to the program to help the Mamelodi community with academic enrichment, especially mathematics.This was my first time coming to South Africa and being part of the program but I felt welcomed, made new friends, and no one ever made me feel like an outsider. 

Working with the learners has been amazing,bing able to tutor and mentor them the amount of potential that exist is immeasurable has been the best experience.

I’d encourage anyone to take a holiday to volunteer in their own capacity.
