We find out how Play Your Part ambassador, and media entrepreneur, Pamela K Bess is giving back to her community.
Durban based Play Your Part ambassador Pamela is a social entrepreneur who has succeeded in turning her passion for media development into a business with an edge. Pamela believes that media empowerment and entrepreneurship are vital keys to unlocking the sustainable growth of Africa’s Social Economy. That’s why this former radio host and news reader dedicates her time to driving social transformation innovatively.

Through these organisations Pamela has been given opportunities to play her part in various spheres. These are some of the projects Pamela is currently involved in:
