Inspired by the African proverb “If you climb up fast enough, you must pull others up”, Mazibuko started a tutorship project in 2016 for Khayelitsha schoolchildren, aimed at improving their marks, ranging from maths to life sciences.
The project has gone from strength to strength, and now Mazibuko wants to start producing tutorial videos to reach a wider audience.
“My community drives me. I come from a place where only 10 out of 200 matric pupils go to university and graduate. That must change.
"I want young people from poor backgrounds to see that it’s possible to overcome adversity. I want to instil a culture of hard work among these communities,” Mazibuko said.
