- Lindokuhle Shezi is a student at a high school in Durban
- He saved money throughout the year

A selfless student in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, has won praise for using his annual savings to benefit underprivileged women.
Lindokuhle Shezi studies at Glenwood High School, which shared his inspiring story on its Facebook page recently.
The school received an email from Danny Vermaak, who witnessed Lindokuhle's act of generosity and kindness.
Vermaak said Lindokuhle had made savings since the beginning of the year. However, it wasn't for his own benefit, Briefly.co.za gathered.
On 1 October, which was his birthday, he used the savings to buy cosmetics and gifts for women living at the Haven of Hope Homeless Shelter.
Vermaak described Lindokuhle as a selfless and respectful young man who has a heart of gold. He added, "With a young man like this, we have a bright future in our country."
The young teen also received praise from inspired commenters. Gina Malta wrote:
Lindokuhle Shezi, may the Lord bless and guide you. You are an inspiration to thousands of young people in our country! Well done young man.
Zodwa Mabe added:
Heartwarming Shezi, may the young man continue to be a light that shines all around him. He's indeed the light that is put not under but on the table.
