There are several brilliant people in South Africa who cannot make it in life because funding has a colour in South Africa, who is your father and who are you affiliated to.
Beginning the end of next month, I will be donating to the young people between 18 and 30 in the villages, townships to a total of a 1000 south Africans. This is for South Africa for now.
Every young person who does not have a job and has been hustling putting together trying to get a living I am encouraging to find a deal to do deliveries through scooters. You can get in touch with us. I am donating a total of 1000 of electric Agilitee scooters LoadEx.These are at a value of 52 million rands. For you to qualify you must come from a poor family, unemployed and pushing for business.
We doing the same for young kids, I grew up in a poor village where I used to walk 30 kms with no shoes to school in winter. It was bad. You go to school you hungry, no shoes. We have been through the worst. I have decided to do donation for children in villages.
We will start in villages and we going to give 5000 scooters.
There are children who cross rivers to go to school. Young kids who do every day. We will start with 12-14 age groups. They will not need a scooter license to drive them. Poverty is painful we don’t wish anyone to experience it.
This is not going to end here; we are going to do this forever.
We will be taking 2% from every sale to contribute to the poor.
For the first time we are changing Africa and I am so excited that there is no one who can do anything to stop it. For the first we are creating balance in Africa.
We are not scared because God is our weapon.
These are times when we need leaders with action. You can motivate people but motivation alone is not enough.
You can inspire people but that alone is not enough. I come from nothing myself I know I grew up listening to motivational talks but it was not enough.
Our people are spending a lot of money to attend conferences where CEOs of big corporations who are taking huge salaries can’t even contribute a pair of shoes for a child. They tell you their presence is more important.
Let’s change this in South Africa and the entire continent. I have been invited to speak at a certain event and they are offering to pay me but I said no. I told them I will come there free of charge. I will use my own means to get there, I will use my own means to sleep in that hotel and I will be donating something there as well.
But someone will say pay me this much for me to come and speak. Yes, there are people who take advantage but there are places who you see that these are young men and women who are trying to bring difference in society.
I am seeing people providing motivations asking people to pay for that and yet they earn 600 00 rands per month. Those people can’t even buy shoes or groceries for the underprivileged.
They cannot commit 2000 rands a month to help the poor. I will never hire a CEO like that. You can be a great CEO but the moment we realise you are not committed to society, you will never work for us.
I does not matter how big the company you working for.
Agilitee will never hire anyone who does not contribute to the community.
Mentoring people on Zoom is not enough, young people need funding.
God is going to raise a new leadership that is going to afford opportunities of the underprivileged.
I refuse to be put in position where I forget where I am coming from because there are so many people that we left behind.
Every time God blesses you tag one. Every time you move to first step tag people and when you move the second step tag more eventually we are all there. That’s the society I wanna live in. I don’t want to live in a society of evil and cruel people.
