Why I joined M4C: I believe everyone should be given a chance to express his or her potential fully. Your parents income status is not the definition of who you are but you are responsible for your own future. There are challenges we face and no one will ever understand. I joined M4C because I believe children should be given a chance to express and show that potential and to make them believe they can achieve what they want and also they will survive life challenges and become better individuals.
Why I joined M4C: I joined Melela 4 Children in 2016 after a friend enlightened me regarding the activity. I immediately preferred it as I have such a great amount of affection for children. The vision of the organization took me back to what I was educated by my mom. She taught me that one hand washes the other and we ascend by lifting others. She showed me not to undermine or look down on other individuals thinking my "class" is superior to theirs, claiming tomorrow isn't guaranteed. From when I joined the organization, I grew a superior individual than I was previously. Standing in front of the children everyday getting to find myself in them more than comparing them with the 11-year-old (Grade 4) me, gives me so much purpose into making a difference in their lives. NOW I know how to treat children with various capacities, identities, and so on a similar path without making one feel more adored than the other, visa-versa. Furthermore, the position that I hold in the organization additionally enhanced a portion of personality in me. Separating among critical and non-imperative, being more committed and competent, getting energetic about something I didn't figure I would be enthusiastic about. Showcasing or promoting M4C is challenging, yet I like the challenge as it improves my level of interest, understanding, competency and promise to the exercises I embrace. M4C is my second home and everybody who has a place with it, is my family and they hold an extraordinary place in my heart.
Why I joined M4C: I am passionate about education and children. In fact my love for children drove me to choose Physiotherapy as a future career since I will be mostly working in the hospital helping the little ones. I would love inspire people to do better and hopefully lead them in the right direction to have a better future. As a role model, I can push the importance of education and help nurture future economically active individuals in South Africa. M4C will award me the opportunity to grow my skills in dealing with children and and merge those skills with my future profession.
Why I joined M4C: I want to help the children to strive for excellence through motivation, aid them to understand the power of having positive attitude towards life, being independent and responsible. Mentor them to realise their strengths and capabilities. Assist them in their difficulties in both Mathematics and English to better their future
Why I joined M4C: It has been said, “children are the future of tomorrow”, but how does one ensure that the future that you speak of is going to be one that will give rise to leader, innovators, business people, individuals that will shape the country in to one that eliminate poverty, and serve its people. The is only one way it is to enrich these children now and prepare them for the real world as it is. One way is to empower this kids and make them believe that their dreams are in their finger tips and they need to start on the journey of finding their skills and talents. Reason why I am part of Melela of M4C it is to do the aforementioned. My mission is to foresee that each and every child gets the attention they need and receives the adequate information they need to make their dream possible. My background help me to understand that there’s a need for M4C, and my vision is what keeps me going and still will. “I have no life I cannot touch the life of the person next to me and make it a better.” I joined M4C to ensure that children reach their full potential.
Why I joined M4C: Teaching has always been not just a dream but a passion. I’ve always wanted to see change. I have love for children and always hope that one day I will make an impact in my community.
Why I joined M4C: I joined this organization because of the passion and love I have for my society and I believe that you are the change you want in the world. Always talking and whining about our challenges while not doing anything to change the situation is pointless. I am inspired by the quote, “You are the change you want in the world.”
Why I joined M4C: I joined M4C for quite a lot of reasons. First and foremost, it is because of the love I have for children and I also believe in the saying that it’s easier to give shape and direction to a young tree compared to a fully developed one. If children are nurtured with enough education, they can make the world a better place. I also believe in helping other people grow and see them succeed, it brings me joy every time I make a positive contribution into another person’s life. It also helps me grow as an individual and gain experience on how to work with people and sharpen my communication skills as I will need them later in life as an individual. One other reason is that I love challenges and trying out new things. I believe learning new things can help me become a good socializer, team player, help me understand people in depth and possibly equip all I need to become a better citizen of South Africa and the world.
Why I joined M4C: I joined M4C because ever since I finished high school I always felt the need to give back to the community, to give back to an NPO that preaches “education is power” because I was also assisted by an NPO that made me realize my strength, passion and potential. I’ve always believed that every child deserves a chance to be empowered for them to grow up to being strong men and women that we can be proud of. When I heard about M4C from a good friend of mine I knew that it was an NPO that was made for me and till this day I am loving every second of it because I am not just part of an NPO but part of a family.
