It's #MotivationMonday! Meet Olga Nokhayalethu Zweni (52). She joined our partner organisation, Sinikithemba CBO because she wanted to care for the children in her community who looked so unhappy and uncared for. She wanted to be close to them to show a little love and caring.

She is the treasurer of Sinikithemba and received bookkeeping training through #AfricanSolutions . She explains: "It was very helpful and insightful, as I am able to balance a cash book now."

Olga adds: "What inspires me is the change that I see in children’s lives. They are happy and there is not much hunger among them anymore because they get two plates of food, one at school and one here at the centre later in the day before they go home. The children love the centre very much and they are happy here. I would like to thank ASAP for the change they brought to our village. I love the women I work with, they inspire me. Their dedication for the centre is heartwarming."
