Thabo & Portia Mabaso
Thabo and Portia Mabaso – nominated by a customer, Vanessa Evans – as our special guests at the OneWingz Golf day at Randpark in 2018 … Thabo is a barista at a Seattle Coffee, but dreams of being a Chef. OneWingz not only committed to sponsoring his Chef’s course, but put R 20 000 towards putting their 4 children through school in 2019.
One of the ONEWingz initiatives which takes center stage each year, is the Bursary Drive, where the focus is on education only for that specific month. By way of the fund (and its donors or sponsors) listeners mail in, nominating themselves, their children, or those they know of, for ONEWingz to assist in paying for studies, whether that be school, a diploma, specialized life skills courses or for university.
In 2015 and 2016, ONEWingz donated over R100 000 in bursaries each year during these drives, and in 2018, in honor of Mr Mandela, ONEWingz has committed another R100 000 to paying the fees for 67 school children at school in Mr Mandela’s home village of Qunu. This will be handed over on 5 February 2019.
