And He’s Off

We were so fortunate to have had an exemplary young man, Shearer Ngobeni, spend some time with us at GWF earlier this month. Shearer is no stranger to GWF – not only is he the son of Freddy Ngobeni, one of Londolozi’s finest trackers, he is also part of our bursary programme. Shearer spent a week with us before heading off to university. We asked him to share a bit about himself, and he’s also written an article about one of the GWF team members who has inspired him.

About Shearer

“I am a content young gentleman, with a burning passion to take over the world and make a difference. I attended Southern Cross College in Hoedspruit, from the young age of 10, and made my way to become the Head Boy in 2018. At the end of my matric year, I obtained a successful bachelor’s pass so will be attending the University of Cape Town, February 2019 to study a Bachelor of Social Sciences. My passion for art and acting gained me the Cultural Award, and my compassionate nature earned me the Learner’s Matric award. What brings me to the Good Work Foundation is my passion to help others. GWF has played a vital role in my life and I am here to give back and impact somebody else’s life just as GWF has impacted mine.”  – Shearer Ngobeni

There he goes – up the stairs and on his way.

Special thanks to everyone who has supported Shearer along the way, in particular, his family, Jenifer and Jeff Westphal, Kate Groch, and the extended Londolozi family.
