The modernisation of the world has led to many cultures fading away. Young people have adapted new traditions and views as society evolved; and, if not checked, this poses the risk of a culture completely dying out.

Over the course of time, several languages, including Latin, have died and since been forgotten. However, one young man is making sure Tshivenda is not going anywhere.

A 16-year-old teen, who was identified by his Twitter handle @Unarine_Leo, created a website which educates people of the Venda culture and teaches them how to speak Tshivenda.

His story was shared on HeSouthAfrica's Twitter page on Wednesday.
