Joëlle Kayembe launches a charitable initiative with The Trace Foundation.
Model Joëlle Kayembe has teamed up with the TRACE Foundation to support South African youth who are embarking on promising new ventures within their community.
As a non-profit organisation with an over-arching goal to support projects that address some of the challenges today's youth are currently facing, the TRACE foundation has partnered with Kayembe to provide sustainable youth development programmes to empower SA’s youth.
The foundation's most current project involves 21 year olds Masego Mlangeni and Gugu Masilela from Tembisa, Johannesburg. Masego, who dropped out of university due to financial difficulties, found that the sheer lack of learning supplies she had to work with during her studies furthermore prevented her from receiving quality tertiary teachings.
Both Masego and Gugu have appealed to the TRACE Foundation to, not only help themselves, but to help other students in similar situations by moderating the direct impact this educational inadequacy has on learners.
TRACE Foundation’s project will, therefore, support the development initiatives of Masego and Gugu and see to it that resources be made available for the betterment of students with limited study materials who are striving to fulfil their basic right to a fair education.
