The Soweto Uprising, also known as 16 June, where a series of protests led by high school students in South Africa that began on the morning of 16 June 1976. To the brave youth that took part, some losing their lives, an annual Youth Day was set to commemorate their sacrifices. June is often referred to as Youth Month and Heart FM through our 16 Days For Youth initiative emphasising the message of how important our youth are. It’s not just about commemoration, we’ll be celebrating the youth of today, the amazing advances young people have led the world in. We asked you to nominate individuals who are helping and giving back in various communities, and we received many nominations for Mymoena Scholtz from ‘Where Rainbows Meet’.

This incredible woman and her team ensure that thousands of people get fed daily at the Vrygrond informal settlement in Cape Town. We reached out to our partners from Mc Donalds who came on board and graciously donated R5000 to shine more light on this selfless and incredible woman for all her hard work.
