My name is Songezo Mabece
I am a national radio talk show host on SAFM and full time Legal Counsel at the Competition Commission of South Africa.
This July, in support of the work and programmes of the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Imbumba Foundation, I will be taking on the great summit of Mt Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania in an independent capacity.
This will be part of the annual and global #MandelaDay commemorations that see the world contributing something to society for #67minutes. The climb will take much longer than that, but my hope is to help draw attention to the many social challenges young girls and women in our society face as lived and daily experience. The funds raised will be going to the Caring4Girls menstrual health programme at the Imbumba Foundation.
I aim to raise R110 000, by the 25 June 2022 and we can, with your help.
At the conclusion of my climb, I will take my left hiking boot and donate it to my alma mater, Selborne College to start the “Left Boot Legacy”. It is my hope that this will be the start of an ongoing campaign that will ensure that a person over the age of 18 in the community of Selborne schools will be able to participate in the annual climbs of Mt Kilimanjaro in honour of the work of former President Mandela.
Change a girl child’s life by donating a once-off amount now.
Join us in activating generosity towards this great cause.
