Young Community Shaper finalist 2012 - Palesa...

Just of the beaten track in Benoni you will find the lovely little suburb of Wattville. This is also the home of Palesa and where she helps to uplift her community.

Palesa's project runs at a local school. Here, she and her team of volunteers feed the foundation phase of the school every afternoon after school.

After they have eaten, they are taken back into the classroom where the children are taught in a very interactive and fun way on the subjects they need a little extra time in.

It does not end here. Palesa and her helpers have made a vegetable garden in a corner on the premises and here they not only grow veggies to feed the hungry horde of young ones, - but also teach them how to grow and look after the veggies as well as the importance of a healthy diet.

After all the learning and schooling the day ends with the group playing various sports like soccer, netball and drum majorettes. I am sure this team sleeps very well at night, - I was tired after just one day we spend with the little ones!
