Summary of Community Action Project (CAP):
Paul Tsiri is from the Limpopo province and is passionate about education and finding a means of keeping learners motivated towards achieving academic excellence. As part of his Community Action Project in 2012, Paul decided that he would bring speakers to his school to motivate the high-school learners into aspiring for more. His hope was that motivational speakers would provide insight into their experiences, how they had overcome challenges within their life and how they had achieved their dreams.
One of the speakers he brought to Dendron Secondary School in September 2012 is Tendai Joe, founder of When Pages, who was also a speaker at University of Johannesburg enke: Forum 2012. In 2013 Paul hopes to host a career’s fair at his school to provide his fellow learners with some exposure to all the career options available to them.
