Meet Bongi Ndlovu
The Wealth Migrate team met Bongi as part of the Lemonade day event that was held in Knysna in July 2015. Lemonade day is a charity organization that teaches children the skills of entrepreneurship. Scott Picken, CEO of Wealth Migrate brought this idea from America to South Africa. Given that he lives in Knysna, he ran the pilot project during the 2015 Oyster festival.
Bongi is one of the children who stood out. He made a R1 600 profit at Lemonade Day.  His parents say that ‘’it has changed his path, he is now very interested in business’’. While all the other kids went home Bongi would not leave, staying until he had sold out, he was always the last one there. He showed true tenacity, passion, and humility over the four-day event.
Following Lemonade Day, Wealth Migrate initiated a fund-raising campaign to support Bongi’s aptitude for education by raising funds to pay for his tuition fees at Oakhill School. To date funds have been raised, for his full Grade 8 tuition and part of his Grade 9 tuition. To date, we have received progress reports from Oakhill confirming that Bongi is doing exceptionally well. He has made the provincial hockey A-Team which is one year ahead of his age group.
For Bongi to continue at Oakhill and take part in sport we need to continue to raise these fees. Unfortunately, Bongi was no given a bursary for 2017 due to bursary fund limitations at Oakhill, however, this will be reconsidered in 2018.
Bongi’s parents also understand that providing an education is important for their son and they will continue to contribute what they would have towards government school tuition should he have continued this path.
Target 2017
R115 124.23
 Tuiton for his grade 9 year
Raised to date
We have raised R62 500 so far
Message from Bongi
’So, Oakhill has been awesome this year, I've had my difficulties. Sometimes I must give my all and sometimes there's just enough time to have fun. I've made lots of new friends and have a few favourite teachers whose teaching methods are excellent.
Oakhill has mentors who guide us through thick and thin and are always there when we need advice. It hasn't been so bad being the newbies of Oakhill college, and if I stay another year or more that would mean a lot to me.
I've noticed that in IEB schools, the education is one grade higher than other government schools so it has been tricky to only come in at grade eight where I've taken such a big step from a government school to a private school and taken me a while to understand the difference in work.
The Lemonade Day project has taught me a lot including how to handle and not waste money on silly things and it taught me the ways of trade and that one does not just trade with only money. The other thing I've learnt is that entrepreneurship is not only about money, it’s also about using common sense and knowing how to handle people mentally.
I've been thinking a lot about my future but my mom says I'm stressing too much and must first focus on the present and I really don't know if that’s a good or bad thing.
I would like to send a massive thanks to everyone who has helped me at Oakhill this year and for the people who helped me get into Oakhill, that it would be a really big pleasure if they could do the same for next year. Thank you.’’
