- Ntsiki Mazwai selflessly helped renovate a Sowetan school library and expected nothing but smiling faces in rturn
- She gave a donation of R5000 along with her time and she was beyond happy to help
- The children were extremely grateful and sent her the sweetest thank you message which melted her heart
This read proves there are still people out there that are prepared to give without needing recognition for their selfless act.
Ntsiki Mazwai is a local poet, musician and beadwork artist. Having a kind heart, Ntsiki recently walked into the office at Nkholi Primary School in Pimville, Soweto and offered to help upgrade their library.
Even though most of the learners had never heard of Ntsiki, they are grateful to her for her contribution.
A container was donated to the school about six years ago to serve as a library. As the years have gone by, the library was looking a little worse for wear. Ntsiki was there to offer her assistance in helping to give it a face lift.
The school principle, Esther Moloto told TshisaLIVE "She just walked into the school and asked if she could help with the library. We hadn't met her before that but she said that she wanted to uplift the community and empower the next generation."
Ntsiki’s donation of R5 000, helped give the school’s library a coat of new paint, flowers and a couple of other odds and ends.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Esther expressed that the children were delighted with the new look. It’s their favourite new place to sit near the library at break times and enjoy they lunch.
The donation unfortunately did not cover new books, but all staff and learners are extremely appreciative for all Ntsiki has done for the school.
When TshisaLIVE called Ntsiki to give her comment she declined, saying she had shared the picture of the thank you note the school had sent her.
An appeal has gone out from Ntsiki to all her fans, asking for help in collecting books for the children’s library.
Ntsiki has also been full of excitement this week over her baby sister, Nomsa's pregnancy. Children definetly make her smile.
What a beautiful tribute to our younger generation and what an example to set for other South African celebs. Big up's Ntsiki.
