Linky Nkuna to be Hosted by President Obama

There is a saying that goes “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door” and that is exactly what Linky Nkuna has done. Actually it’s what she’s always done.

Today we found out that Linky – Centre Coordinator at Madlala Digital Learning Centre – has been chosen to participate in the 2014 Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders.

Not only will Linky spend six weeks studying entrepreneurship, business and civic leadership at a prominent American college, but she will also participate in a three-day Washington Fellows Summit hosted by President Obama.

The official letter sent to Linky. We were told that it is now "unclassified" :)

Linky – your Good Work Foundation family is extremely proud and excited for you. So proud in fact that we are going to share the letter above with the world. May your energy and passion for the people of our country grow even stronger as you embark on this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

And may you stand under a tree in Washington D.C. in a pink tree-shirt and feel our pride and love – transmitted to you all the way from a special tree in a small village in rural South Africa.
