Phikwe Born, an organization formed by Selibe Phikwe unemployed youth recently donated clothes to orphans and vulnerable children.

The beneficiaries of the donations were orphans from Phikwe, Mother for All and Humana people to people organizations. They were given clothes and playing toys.

The organisation also managed to secure a P2500 per month tender for Mother for all organization from Ackerman’s chain store to collect rubbish.

“We could have taken the business for ourselves but our aim is to empower the disadvantaged and in that way we will be empowering ourselves,” said Woodman.

She said that through their humanity work they are able to market their members to potential employers.

Phikwe Born have created their website using the skills they acquired from tertiary institutions and they host the website for SPEDU.
