The first I hear about Londi is that Mom Carol is about to enter her into the competition for “Ambassador for children’s rights”. I guess that tells me quite a bit about this person I am about to meet.
Carol Dyantyi changes lives –
She is the founder of Ikageng Itireleng Ministries in Soweto and has made it her life’s mission to help orphaned and other vulnerable children less fortunate than ourselves. I am not sure if she really chose this path herself or if it was chosen for her. It all began a few years ago when she helped some children in her community to raise money for the funeral of their mother that had just passed away. The rest – is history – as they say.
It has been two years now since I met Mom Carol and her orphanage Ikageng Itireleng. Working with her and some of the children in her programme has become an important part of my life and the more I get involved in this project, the more my awareness grows towards other socially conscious projects, charity organisations and big-hearted people around me.
