“I taught teens at the Bana Ba Modimo Children’s Ministry in Diepsloot for years. In spending time in this environment I came to know many of the teens personally. I started to understand their needs, hardships and zest for life. I realised that there was a great need for life skills and so started encouraging friends and colleagues to get involved. After much prayer I decided to take action. One birthday instead of receiving the usual bath smellies, scarves and bottles of wine from friends I sent a request out to rather make a donation to a fund. The result was encouraging and so Khensani’s Collection was born. Some special people at ENS, Africa’s largest law firm, encouraged the cause to grow and so we pursued registration. I have learned that when something is right, doors open. This has been my experience with this initiative as people continue to support and encourage our work.
Khensani’s Collection has grown consistently over the years and is now a registered NPC with 6 directors, an employed teacher and most importantly, happy teens we are assisting on a daily basis to become the best they can be.”
