Brothers for all

Season 7 Episode 28

An ex-convict, former high-ranking 26 gang member creates hope for the people. “Its all about teaching people how to dream different dreams about themselves. Not only seeing township people as tradesmen.”

Sihle Tshabalala spent 11 years of his life in prison. When he came out of prison 3 years ago he realised that Langa the nearest  township to Cape Town’s CBD is still undeveloped. The unemployment rate of this township exceeds over 50% , 60% of the people don’t have matric, 80% of the households don’t have computers. “If government is only designing programmes that are only focused on people with matric that means its targeting only 30% or less.” Sihle takes initiative and creates hope for the community  by starting a Non Profit Organisation “Brothers for all” that teaches from high school drop outs to teenage mom’s, unemployed youth and ex- offenders how to do computer programming, coding, graphic design, entrepreneurship and digital marketing.

“You don’t need to be quiet when things are not going good in your community. Stand up and do something about it.”

Be the change you want to see.

“Our time will pass as for our parents, what type of legacy are we leaving behind for the new generation?”
