Kgomotso Thebe is the manager of the Jehovah Jirah Orphange Centre, which was founded by her mother in an effort to enrich the Soshanguve community but is currently in dire need of funding.
Wanting to keep her mother’s dream alive and continue to care for the children, Kgomotso and her colleagues decided to start a company.
Because she knew her community well and appreciated that they loved food and getting together to share means, Kgomotso realised that her company, The Eatz ZA, could provide a space for the community to do exactly that, Briefly.co.za found.
Kgomotso hosts markets and events where people can attend; buy food and hang out with friends, but also donate to a worthy cause. She and her sisters prepare the food and sell it to enthusiastic customers who come to support their events, discovered Sowetan Live.
