HESBON SIDON NYAKWAR JAMOKO opens up the doors of his purpose to the world. His countless fights to see children smile and dance in this Africa are the burning flame that should and shall make his land the wonder spreading its blessed wings.
Hesbon’s answers to questions about OneAfricanChild Foundation for Creative Learning tell us all about the state of mind and the strong belief of this African Root.

What were your dreams as a child?
When I was young, I dreamt of being a President.

Could you tell something significant you happened to do for a child?
At the age of 22, as I was watching an insight feature about our community, on the plight of young girls who were missing school because they couldn’t afford sanitary towels during periods, something touched me. I took this initiative first by donating only ten pieces- the 1st ever. Now some friends and I donate 1500 boxes to 5 schools around us.

What is the first word that naturally comes to your mind when you hear “Children”?
PEACE.

How did OneAfricanChild get into your life?
OAC, since its inception, has always inspired me to move forward even when I was almost dropping the initiative. I am Indebted to Victoria whom we frequently communicate with and so inspiring.

Why do you allocate such amount of time and hope to poor children and orphans?
If I don’t, somebody won’t. And at the end of it nobody will. I have to play my role.

How do you positively impact lives around you everyday?

Our people, especially the poor and the pro poor, don’t need to be reminded of their economic plague. But I will always inspire them on the few opportunities they have, and how to make it a reality with resources available.

Why do you believe in OneAfricanChild?

OAC not only inspires Child being, but carries it forward as a development programme. This has a long term effect and makes me have that confidence.

There is something you can do for the future. What is that?
Making my community a better place for the future generation.

Africa needs your country for the peace building process. Are you ready to be your country?

Yes. Many forums I have addressed and I believe that it’s only peace that can make Nations develop. I am ready to bring my experience on board.

What has changed in your life since you joined OneAfricanChild?

My perception towards girl child empowerment. It’s not only a community problem but a global challenge.

It doesn’t matter whether you believe in God or not. The most important thing is that, He believes in you.

Interview with Mlondi Praise Gabhisa #OneAfricanChild #SouthAfrica #oneafricanleader

OneAfricanChild has evolved to become a very large and strong Family worldwide, and in the process of building a wonderful world for our children, the Foundation relies on committed ambassadors whose permanent and passionate task is to make sure that the Dream comes true.

Today, we are in South Africa with MLONDI PRAISE GABHISA whose undying smile is a pure heavenly breath. Having been asked five questions about OAC and personal interest:

  • How you came to be involved with OAC?
  • What is your personal drive?
  • What is your vision for South Africa?
  • What is your vision for Africa?
  • What do we need to care for young people/children?

he responded with heart and soul. Let us have a moment with the words from the depths of an African Child. “Before I go further let me start by passing my gratitude for letting me become one of the OneAfricanChild ambassadors, which is something I adore. I really appreciate the way every member welcomed me with warm hands.

1. First I saw OAC page on facebook, then I read what it was all about. I got touched, because it was always in my heart; so I saw it as an opportunity. I had to do an assessment that took two weeks, if I’m not mistaken, whereby every single day had a task. Then after finishing those tasks, I was given a certificate that said I was a full member of OAC.

2. What drives me to do this or to be part of this amazing continual thing, it’s the fact that we are doing it for the up growing kids, so it is a good feeling because I get a chance to interact with kids. No one did it for us, and it helps me to be a bigger or responsible man in future (know how to keep my kids happy when I’m around them). Beside it’s amazing experience working with other members from other African countries united.

3. My vision for SA is to see OAC getting recognized as one of the “top or successful NGO’s” in the country, so that’s one thing that pushes me or that keeps me focused. I always remember this quote from one famous leader Nelson Mandela “It always seems impossible until it’s done”, that quote is one other thing that pushes me I will only rest the day I see this happening.

4. “It takes one person to change the world” that’s Myles Munroe quote. My vision for Africa is to see all African countries being united, not this thing we experience in today’s generation; but it takes one person to do that, then everyone will follow in that vision if its a legit one.

5. Children are the future of the world, so for the whole world to have good people who have great plans, we need to make sure we look after kids nd show them a right path to take. Things will go accordingly. It’s a matter of looking at the outcome on the way forward, or thinking ahead of the whole process.”

As a man whose Faith in God is unbreakable, he shared this profound and relevant thought on January 24, 2015:

God is the only Master we know, the only Creator of the universe, and the only One who can heal our heart.

For Africa to be Free and Happy, it only takes a smile. A smile to a child. A smile to the next dawn. #lamAfrica #IamOneAfricanChild #GlobalCitizen
