It’s been a couple of months since I launched, together with Sameen and Ryan, my first community service initiative and business at Waterford; BOOST.
We’re essentially operating a tuck shop from an empty room in Emhlabeni. People can buy all sorts of snacks and drinks, ranging from chewing gum to noodles and flavored water. So far, the response has been great, and it seems like people are appreciating the business. We’ll probably look for some healthier alternatives to sell, as well, and see how that goes. We’re in the process of moving to Elangeni, and hopefully also to other hostels in the school. 100% of our proceeds go to specific community service initiatives in Swaziland.
