CHANCE FOR CHANGE YOUTH SEMINAR
DATE: 24th SEPTEMBER 2016
VENUE: TSETSE TRIBAL HALL
Chance for change seminar was a huge success. It started on Friday with the RTWN Sanitary Towels and Deodorant Campaign (This campaign is aimed at rebuilding the confidence of young girls and boys, to help them focus on what’s more important, Education). RealTalkWithNthabi was joined by SANITARY TOWELS & DEODORANT organisation which was formed by different organisations coming as one Muhle Malokane, Percy & Teboho Thokolo are some of the members that were present. Together with Nthabi they request donations from sponsors and donate to schools, specifically in rural areas. Their next stop for donation is in the Free State on 14th October 2016. Seipei Shole, from SABC Foundation came to support the campaign and also came with donations. Over 600 sanitary towels & deodorants where donated to all the schools in Tsetse village. Nthabi thanks all the sponsors who contributed to the campaign, including individual contributions.
“Our plea to the nation is to support the RTWN Sanitary Towels & Deodorant Campaign, until the government provides free sanitary towels there’s a lot that needs to be done.”
On Saturday, the official day of the event started with a March for change, where youth gathered together and marched for change and encouraging more youth to being escorted by the Mmabatho police service.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT/ WORDS OF GRATITUDE FROM (Lebogang Nthabi Mokgosi) REALTALKWITHNTHABI (HOST)
I would like to extend my gratitude to everyone who supported and sponsored this event, I am humbled & Grateful, especially to my family as they are the pillar of my strength. This event was a success because of all of you. It wasn’t mine, but ours. I’m proud to be from tsetse village, and growing up being called a village girl inspired me to push myself and prove that my background doesn’t determine my future, this event was to encourage the youth of Tsetse village to take the chance to change, to stand against all odds and to know that somethings are just temporary. All things are possible through God. Let’s take the chance & build a legacy for the generation to come. Together we can do more. My daily quote that drives me is “I HAVE SEEN WHAT HARD WORK CAN DO, AND I KNOW WHAT MORE IT CAN & WILL DO” – Nthabi.
There’s no substitute for hard work, sooner or later, you will get what you deserve. Ke a leboga.
