NPO Founder

Matseliso is a founder of NPO Lefurile Passion Project based on Evaton South of Johannesburg. The NPO is a girls club (girls in high school) established as a safe space for young girls in the area to access mentors, tutoring and engage in conversation about social issues that affect them in order to help them find solution. The girls club also helps instill a sense of active citizenship, encouraging the girls grow to see themselves as people who are able to effect change in the spaces they occupy. Matseliso has taken this leap and though faced with financial and other support challenges including the Covid-19 pandemic, she has persevered and continues to host young girls in her community and is currently working on a programme to help girls transition into university. This programme is intent on providing similar mentoring and a safe space to tackle social challenges that come with transitioning into the university space.
