Activator Itumeleng ‘’Kealeboga-Fortune’’ Mogajane vows to change young people’s lives through a series of youth leadership motivational talks throughout the Bokone Bophirma during Youth Month.
“This campaign is close to my heart. The campaign is informed by the recent women killings. My plan is that this campaign must get to a level where it can provide essential support services like extra lessons, stationery, Saturday classes, leadership boot camps and seminars,’’ said Mogajane
Mogajane is also involved in an NPC called ‘’Kids in ICT’’ that has changed the lives of more than 300 kids between 7 to 20 years so far. The programme focuses on providing ICT skills in rural areas, mainly providing lessons on coding, basic ICT skills and programming. Although they have been able to reach out to many young people, the challenges faced are enormous and sometimes derail progress.
The young leader is intending to effectively use the June 16 commemoration, his birthday celebration (on the 23rd of June) and the 30th of June to stimulate intelligence, identity for male pupils and young men in Zeerust and other parts of North West province.
‘’On the 16th of June I will be part of a career day at my former high school while on my birthday which is on the 23rd of June I will be donating 30 School uniforms to boys. On the 30th of June me and my team will be hosting the Youth leadership talks in Rustenburg Youth leadership talks are a platform for young people to come together and have a festival on interaction ‘mgruvo
The Bokone Bophirma based Activators long term plan is to build a strong sense of identity among young boys and create opportunity for personal growth and development for young males around Zeerust and other parts North West province.

They can also assist by donating white shirts, grey trousers and black school shoes (any size that can be worn by primary school kids), Activators can also play a role by being mentors to these young boys.
