Unleash Greatness Within

Durban-based physical health expert, social entrepreneur (Tripple B fitness family founder) and Activator, Mlekeleli Khuzwayo is set to launch annual academic game changer that will shake and reshape citizenry participation in South African education system.

The inaugural youth and community development initiative Unleash Greatness Within campaign aims to donate 100 school uniforms for primary and high schools in Inanda, Ntuzuma and KwaMashu townships.

Khuzwayo who was tired of hearing people slandering about poor kids situations in the townships decided to start the Unleash Greatness Within campaign not just to remedy the disadvantaged kids’ situation but also create an ideal society where the principles of Ubuntu still bring people  together for a common good. He said his campaign’s long-term aim is beyond just donating school uniform. “For me it all about giving and offloading the burden more especially for kids. I think one of the noblest things any adult can do is to at least create a comfortable environment for kids and inspire them through investing in their education. I also want to instill a different mentality to our people. I want people to know that we have it in us to help the vulnerable than expecting handouts from government.” said Khuzwayo.

Explain his plan of action Khuzwayo said “Ideally I would love to donate 10 uniforms per school and I am targeting 10 school and that explain the logic behind getting ten set of uniforms. So very soon I will be visiting school principals of all the ideal schools I would like to work with. The purpose for my visit in those schools is to introduce my initiative to principals, school management, existing student representative councils, school governing bodies etc. My aim is to at least make sure that the Unleash Greatness Within campaign gets a minimum of 100 school uniforms in March.”

According to Khuzwayo, the initiative Unleash Greatness Within has bigger groundbreaking sustainable plans that will not only change the lives of the beneficiaries but also has potential to change community and youth development and citizen patriotic participation landscape.

A few Kwazulu-Natal government departments have endorsed Khuzwayo’s initiative. Those departments include Department of Education, Department of Arts and Culture. While speaking to Activate Leadership freelance writer, Kwazulu Natal Department of Education Communications manager Muzi Mahlambi congratulated Khuzwayo said. “Department of Education in Kwazulu Natal is extremely excited to hear about Mleleki’s project (Unleash Greatness Within). Words alone can never ever fully describe our gratitude to this young man. May his noble gesture replicates and go beyond just providing uniform but also metal liberate our people. As the department we will always do what needs to be done but we also have our own limitations. Therefore we call on all those who have resources and ability to assist Mleleki’s quest of transforming our education to please do so. Kwazulu Natal Department is proud to have produced proactive young selfless leaders of great caliber Mleleki.”

Mahlambi also slammed what he called “a growing insane culture” of grade twelve learners who paint and destroy their school uniform after final examinations. “As much as we are happy with few young people like Mleleki, we are also worried about prevailing growing insane culture learners who know challenges of going to school without uniform but somehow still decide destroy their uniform. We appeal to all learners to practice one of the principles of Ubuntu and that is to give to the needy if you can. (they even sharing is caring.) Destroying school uniform is not just an selfish act but it is impart wrong principles to the young ones.” said Mhlambi.
