A learner established school talks campaign


“The position my daughter took will help her to stand firm with her decisions, because by now she knows what beauty with purpose is”.

I realise that she needed someone she could connect with at all corners of life, so I decided to get her mentor who guides her through everything, from pageant, charity projects and livelihood seminars, which she is so fond of,” said Mme Matloga

Words of mother, who support her daughter, Mpule Matloga a grade eight aims to support learners through her school talks campaign called let’s talk.

Mpule targeted nearby primary schools to hosts motivational talks. The thirteen years old advise other learners on various issues includes substance abuse, teenage pregnancy, gender based violence and human trafficking among others.

“Every day I witness a lot of girls getting pregnant at an early age. I also had to see a lot of young girls committing suicide because of early romantic relationships- a girls loses her boyfriend then commits suicide,” among the reason she decided to have talks with learners.

Mpule said the country experience a high level of rape. “It’s high time we have peer conversations about it and figure out reasons behind and solutions to it,” she suggests.

“It hurts to see a woman being raped and killed, so I advise girls to stay away from older boys and men,” she ordered her peers.

Adding that boys must be able to stand up and voice out such actions with immediacy.

“How I was raised I believe no child shout at and disrespect an elderly person, no matter the frustration caused. It hurts to see a child disrespecting an elderly,” said founder of school talk campaign.

She also wish to continue modelling because she has lot of support from her mother.
