As part of the Young MOTivators role as active citizens, the youth have gone out into their communities and organized Courage to Care Day projects. 6 MOT schools and 13 college campuses organised courage to care projects for 2018.
Below are just a few of the amazing courage community projects:
Young MOTivators at Northlink TVET College, Parow Campus introduced the students at their campus to MOT and also facilitated MOT sessions. They stressed the importance of having a positive outlook on themselves and others. The students were taught about the invisible backpack each person carries in their daily lives and that we should treat one another with respect as we do not know what each person is going through.
The Young MOTivators at Northlink TVET College, Goodwood Campus donated their time to treat the kids in the Ravensmead community. They held a Variety show and role play session for the kids to showcase their talents. They were also taught them about the 3 core values of MOT as well as handed over a grocery bag to a grateful elderly lady.

Young MOTivators at College of Cape Town facilitated a MOT session with the students at their campus. The session involved the wrist rope challenge and it was used to demonstrate that even if a problem might look impossible to solve, it doesn’t mean it is. Sometimes things require extra effort.
Young MOTivators at False Bay TVET College, along with the staff at the college, accumulated toiletries to prepare individual care packs to child homes in their community. They also partnered with West Coast College to erect a concrete ramp for an elderly woman who is wheelchair bound and living in an informal settlement. They also donated a grocery pack to the elderly woman.
Thank you and well done to Young MOTivators for playing your role as active citizens in your community and showing care to your environment. Thank you to the MOT Coaches and staff for assisting the Young MOTivators with their projects as needed. We are all proud of you!
