Introducing you to the Nka’Thuto Headquarters

The long-awaited Nka’Thuto EduPropeller office launch finally took place on the 19th of May and was accompanied by a stunning night of poetry, networking and laughter. The night took off with a spectacular poem, written by our very own, Tshepo Phola dazzling the crowd with his great play on words outlining the essentiality of community outreach programs especially in the current state of our country. The poem was both humorous and inspirational. This set the tone for the rest of the night with the ambiance elevated to an all times high. Thulile’s captivating speech outlined the humble beginnings of Nka’Thuto, the achievements and strides made thus far and the remarkable things to come.
We were taken through a spectacular time capsule as the winning team from last year, Holo-Form (look out for their story in the next newsletter) took us through their presentation, showing the wonders that exposure and opportunity can do to reveal the innate greatness bestowed upon the youth that just needs the light to propel it. In addition to this, a video bringing back old memories of the program and along with it cheers and tears of joy from the crowd was played, showing the wonderful journey the participants of the program underwent. The learners had us in stitches as they were unexpectedly given gifts sponsored by The Innovation Hub, our appreciation could not be explained in words.
The night was both spectacular and light hearted with our guests having the opportunity to network, lay back and relax for the night.
Just in case you missed it, we are situated at Grosvenor Gate in Hyde Park Lane, Hyde Park, Johannesburg, South Africa. Come join us for coffee!!
