Charmaine witnessed how a foundation provided food to university students and saw how dependednt they were on these meals. She immediately knew that she wanted to be doing this, helping others.
Years later along with two other ladies, Charmaine founded Bopedi Hope Foundation with the aim of giving to the disadvantaged. Currently, the foundation provides sanitary pads, school shoes, clothes, toiletries and anything else identified as really needed, with the sole intention to give hope.
Their vision is to help as many children as possible, instilling hope and eventually taking some to school. Having a children’s home in Sekhukhune is also in the works for her future plans
Worthy of note is the fact that Charmaine is still a student who did not wait for the ‘right circumstances’ to start doing what her heart wanted. She just went for it.
