Shauwn Mkhize has joined force with Department of Correctional Services and SABC1’s “Expressions” on building 20 houses throughout the year with help from inmates.
The businesswoman and actress explains the reason she decided to do that to community, she said she want to contribute and “do something good for the poor child.”
On Instagram, madam she wrote; so yesterday my Prince @andilempisane10 and I went to do a site visit at #1 of 20 houses we will be building this year. #mystorymyway.
“We’ve collaborated with @Sabc1 @expressions and the department of correctional services for labour.
“When we got there I was really impressed at the level of workmanship shown by the inmates and I have committed to assisting them as part of their rehabilitation programme which focuses on skills, training and return to work strategies.
“We all deserve a second chance in life. I guess that was the lesson for the day: always learn from your mistakes and do whatever it takes to be a better person! Happy Choose-day.
In the accompanying video, Mkhize said that she had been contacted by Expressions who told her a “sobby” story about a “family of kids in KZN who lost their mother”, which is now headed by a child in matric.
“As I am celebrating my 20 years this will be one of the 20 houses I’ll be building. I think I can come and contribute and do something good for the poor child, affordable houses are an outcry out there and I will call upon other businesses to help.”
