Nomhle Joba runs a home for orphaned, abused, neglected and abandoned children.
Kieno Kammies has become synonymous with asking tough questions. He is dismissive of spin and invites opinions challenging his own.
It’s not all hard talk with this experienced journalist and radio personality. Kieno cares deeply about the community in which he lives and works. His compassion for those less fortunate, those who have been wronged or ignored by the state is evident.
His presence on the Breakfast Show has made major names a regular feature on CapeTalk. Kieno has interviewed CEOs, Ministers, industry leaders and trend-setters. Some of his interviews have resulted in changes in policy. A focus on MediClinic, for example, resulted in the group of hospitals changing the way they do triage. His interview with a mother who couldn’t afford the tuition fees of Stellenbosch University for her daughter who achieved seven distinctions, resulted in listeners pledging enough funds for her first year.
Kieno will be working with Teen Entrepreneur this year as part of the Lead SA Presenter initiative.
The SA Teen Entrepreneur Foundation was formed in 2014, and works with Grade 11- and 12 learners at high schools across South Africa to foster and develop a spirit of enterprise development. The programme was established out of a need to sufficiently equip learners with the requisite skills to start their own businesses following high school in an attempt to address the extremely high rates of youth unemployment.
The programme is activated through the formation of Entrepreneur Societies in schools, where learners and their teachers develop innovative business models aimed at addressing a need in their communities. According to Founder and Director, Lydia Zingoni, the long-term objective is for these business models to become sustainable and financially viable over time. More information about the programme can be accessed via its website – www.teenentrepreneur.co.za.
