It’s unfortunate that the footage from the second camera was lost for this interview; and with the unrest at Wits plus production issues a re-shoot wasn’t possible. However its important that the story of these phenomenal young women should be told regardless of there being footage or not. WARNING: The video is mostly audio but there is some saved footage towards the end.
The story of how sisters Enhle Khumalo and Mbali Donna began almost seems like it’s the story of an exceptional few. However when Enhle posted this picture (seen above) of herself on twitter – on Women’s Day – telling people that 10% of the proceeds from the sale of her doeks would go towards The Wits Pad Drive, she did not expect the response she received. Beyond the 200+RTs (retweets) and orders, she also caught the attention of businesswoman Mpho Ncza. This lead to the snowball effect of #MbalEnhleSis spreading beyond South African borders.
These young women will not only inspire you as much as they did me but they will make you realise the endless possibilities available to one when you just try. The truth is everything is available to us, especially in this social media era. You never know what you may yield by simply trusting yourself and taking that chance.
Side note: I’m wearing one of their doeks in the main picture.
