“While growing-up, I knew myself to be a compassionate person but I didn’t know there was another dimension to that.”
At the age of (15) Louis JR Tshakoane (27) founder of Underground Millionaires International, wrote a letter to Sir Richard Branson, after reading his book ‘Screw it, let’s do it’, in the letter Tshakoane told Sir Richard on how he plans around improving the lives of the youth in Tembisa.
Sir Richard loved his letter and gave him R2 million worth of capital to start a Gym in his community.
“If someone can give to me, in order for my dreams to come true, in point for me to give back to the community, I started a foundation where-by I fund kids who get good grades in high school with tuition fees towards their choice in the field of studies”- said Tshakoane.
Tshakoane recently launched a mentorship Boot camp for high school learners, the Boot camp to be exact is all about giving light to learners on which career path to take after high school.
Tshakoane claims that majority of kids in townships’ schools don’t get enough empowerment and guidance when it comes to the subject career coaching.
The foundation also donate money on a monthly bases at schools to feed kids who happen to go to school without a lunch box, selected schools would buy sandwiches, beverages and fruits for the unfortunately kids.
“If you don’t have lunch is difficult to concentrate, far more to give good performance in class”- He added.
The greatest test for us human beings is when, we are able to bless someone while we are going through our own storm, at the end is not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished, it’s all about who you’ve lifted-up, made better, is all about giving back.
“When you where are born you cried, while the world rejoiced, live your life in such a way that when you die, the world cries while you rejoice”- Anonymous.
