Over 50 youth empowered with Courage through our MOT Life Skills Programme
We are excited to share that in April, we have empowered over 50 Youth with Courage through our partnership with JP21 Foundation – founder being our MOT Brand Ambassador and Former Professional Cricket Player, JP Duminy through their Cricket Skills Holiday Programme.
The purpose of the holiday programme is to empower our future cricket stars in developing skills of cricket as well developing and strengthening life skills, and that is where MOT South Africa comes in.
Our inspiring MOT Coaches empowered the learners with the necessary leadership skills to reinforce the good in themselves and others. They are taught to show courage through MOT’s 3 core values: Courage to Live, Courage to Care, and Courage to say No.
We are so proud of our MOT Coaches, Cheslyn Rippenaar and Shouneez Dearham, who were first trained as Young MOTivators (Youth Leaders) for their continued passion and enthusiasm. And for facilitating the MOT Programme and educating our youth to become robust, show courage and become active citizens and role models in our society. Our youth are after all the next generation!

We are super proud of all our MOT Coaches for their perseverance, dedication, and for being innovative when it comes to running the MOT Programmes, despite the challenges that the pandemic brings.
Our MOT Coaches are the first point in reaching our youth and therefore play a huge role in their lives.
Our next generation is now empowered with tools to make better choices, and to be the change they wish to see in this world!
Let us continue to empower the youth of tomorrow with the Courage to lead themselves.
