The post generated over 32 000 reactions and South Africans applauded Tlhone for taking the initiative to create food certainty for not only her family, but other members of the community as well.

Jacqui Mc Duling commented:

"You are an amazing example and what a beautiful piece of property for this project. Please post your progress regularly."

Paloy Loy said:

"You honestly deserve land to expand."

Bulelwa Baliwe wrote:

"A beautiful mind and attitude. Boss lady, I salute you dear."

Sonja Prinsloo Jacobs added:

"Wow, now that is forward thinking. Why must people always ask for help if they can help themselves. Government must also hand out garden tools, packets of vegetable seeds and stream a lesson for learners on how to start a veggie garden. Learners will learn a lot and be constructively busy."

Well done and I hope there are others that will follow .

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported on another inspiring lady. A 61-year-old woman has used her own money to buy over 50 food parcels.

The gogo has since blessed less fortunate families in her community during lockdown. Her story was shared online by her proud daughter and quickly caught the attention of thousands of South Africans.
