Celebrating our youth making a difference (Part 2)

Celebrating our youth making a difference (Part 2)

This is the second part of our tribute to some of the youth that have inspired us over the past few years, and have been awarded the Inyathelo philanthropy awards for their amazing efforts.

We are starting with Afeefah, who is the youngest ever recipient of one of our awards. At her tender age, Afeefah wasn’t scared to speak up when she noticed a wrong that needed to be righted. Along with our other past recipients, she is an example to us all of what the youth are able to achieve!

His foundation, Atlantic Philanthropies, has given billions of Rands to our emerging South African democracy.  Inyathelo was privileged to award him the 2014 Inyathelo "Lifetime Philanthropy Award for Giving While Living. Executive Director of Inyathelo, Shelagh Gastrow, gave a special tribute to Mr. Feeney at the awards ceremony, which we include below.

Eleven other extraordinary individuals were honoured as well. We hope find their stories as compelling and uplifting as we did (watch on YouTube).
