Dumisani Patrick Mhlabane aka Dumza. Dumsani has also made the cut of a selected few Vodacom Change the World (CtW) volunteers for 2017/2018.
The 32-year-old from Mkhuhlu, Mpumalanga loves working with young people and will spend a year working at the Mandlazi Community Life Skills (MCLS) giving his time and skills. The MCLS is a non-profit organisation (NPO) which is situated in Mkhuhlu and works with young people and is focused on performing arts and life skills.
Dumisani previously worked as a volunteer with the Bushbuckridge Municipality and will now dedicate his time working as a Project Manager, teaching pupils basic computer skills.
He says he believes that through the CtW programme he can help combat the challenge of school drop-out and other social challenges faced by young people in rural areas.
