Fellow Reflections

Gugu Mbatha,
Jakes Gerwel Fellow, Class of 2018

Education inspires me: I will give others the powerful weapon to change their world. I believe what I set my mind and heart to is achievable. I will put my vision into action with skills learnt through Jakes Gerwel Fellowship

Lebogang Malindi,
Jakes Gerwel Fellow, Class of 2018

My JGF journey has been one of self growth and friendship. I will turn my vision of South African quality education into reality. Later I will continue as an edupreneur. It’s a privilege to create this legacy in SA.

Biotumelo Diale,
Jakes Gerwel Fellow, Class of 2018

Jakes Gerwel Fellowship affirmed my decision to be a teacher. JGF doesn’t only liberate us financially but also holistically supports us. I believe there is a future for teachers in SA. I am truly honoured to be a part of this change.
