  I am a 25 year old female who has been doing community work for as long as I can remember. The organisation is not registered because I have tried many times to start an NGO, but failed due to the passion only beeing on my side. The community I live in has so many problems and i have tried to help as much as I can but it is still not enough. I lay awake planning and work to help. Recently I made a proposal to the local schools to do Counselling and one School Margot Fonteyn allowed. I discovered more problems that the youth face the drugs,school dropouts, teen pregnancy and most especially someone to talk to. Someone to urge them foward and also sports are essential in any childs growth and we lack the different sports. I want the organisation to also cater for young business minded youth so the organisation won’t have to wait for funding, i have a couple of ideas that me and a friend of mine have gone over. I also have been promised mentorship to help me but non have when i asked. Everyday I don’t do what I love and believe I do best I feel like I die a little inside and everyday someone loses their life when they could have been helped. Help me help another ngoba umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu.
