Protea Cricket star, JP Duminy, is the latest addition to the MOT Brand Ambassadors. Duminy has come up with an exciting campaign for MOT South Africa during the upcoming ODI against Sri Lanka. The MOT logo will be displayed on his bat and he will tweet about MOT during this series.
The South Africa vs Sri Lanka ODI Series kicks off on Saturday, 28 January 2017, at St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth.
“I’m extremely proud to be a part of such an incredible NPO that has the lives of the youth as its core focus. The organisation has identified the need for life-skills development among our young people. Placing the MOT logo on my bat is a sign of my commitment to work with MOT to empower and strengthen the youth in South Africa,” said Duminy.
MOT South Africa is a registered and leading Public Benefit and Non-Profit Organisation, specialising in life-skills development among the youth. The theme for MOT SA this is year is “Together is Better”. MOT SA works with educators and youth at TVET colleges and high schools in the Western and Eastern Cape. The MOT programmes help young people develop self-awareness, make conscious life choices and show courage that will enable them to develop to their full potential.
MOT gives young people the strength to manage peer pressure, to believe in themselves and to take responsibility for their own lives and future.
The name “MOT” was chosen because of its simple strength, and its double meaning: the Norwegian word ‘mot’ denotes both the ability to show courage, and the ability to take a stand against something; in this case, the prevalence of violence, bullying and drug use.
“The impact that the MOT programme has on the youth is lasting. To witness these young minds challenging themselves to be greater, motivates us to keep going.
Thanks to the support of MOT Brand Ambassador, JP Duminy, the MOT brand will continue to grow in strength and influence, reach more youth and create a platform for positive change within our schools, colleges and society. We wish JP all the best in the upcoming series,” said MOT CEO, Wanda Möller.
