After reading in the Polokwane Observer last week about Capricorn High School learner, Tlou Dinyake (16) being crowned Miss Teen Commonwealth South Africa 2018, Sebastin Samuel, Executive of Cell C Limpopo’s regional office immediately reached out to her to see how he could assist her with her goal of helping children in need.
Samuel said one of Cell C’s goals is to assist wherever possible in uplifting the country’s younger generation as well as the upliftment of women. “When I read about Tlou and her work within the local community, I decided on behalf of Cell C to assist her wherever possible because we want to give back to the local community that supports us,” Samuel explained.
To help Tlou easily communicate and organise her charitable causes, Cell C has sponsored her with a 100 gigabyte anytime data card for a year as well as a MiFi router, all valued at a total of R2 600.
Tlou thanked Samuel and Cell C for their generosity and commitment to her cause. “This is going to go a long way to help me get my message out there,” she added.
Tlou is also the ambassador of Samaritan Children’s Home and has several other projects in the pipeline. Anyone who would like to know more about her projects or assist her in any way can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
