Local starlet and philanthropist Bonang Matheba is determined to make a difference in South Africa.
And South Africa is noticing. This past Saturday she was awarded the first 5 For Changemaker Award at the gala evening in Johannesburg and on the evening she made a special announcement.
We all know she launched a bursary fund in 2016 and with this, she aims to send girls to further their studies. She took to Instagram to announce that her bursary fund will afford 10 girls the opportunity to attend university in 2019.
