Education co-ordinator

Zamo Shongwe

“Both of my parents are teachers and weren’t just interested in us doing well, but about finding out who you are in order to excel. They’d say, ‘if you find out who you are, that becomes your act of service to the world.’ I thought everyone grew up thinking like that.”

Zamo Shongwe is the national co-ordinator of Ikamva Youth, an NGO that focuses on empowering young people through education, e-literacy training and career guidance.
