Zimasa Khatshwa on rebuilding after her shack was burned down and Grassroot ambassadorship

We reported on the Grassroot Facebook page on March 26th this year that some good Samaritans have donated a shack to Zimasa Khatshwa after hers was burned down on the 31st of December 2016. Luckily, no one was injured but Khatshwa lost all her belongings in the fire and the shack that she had just moved into was empty so she had to start all over again.

Not a lot has changed for Zimasa, there is still a long way to go however we are proud to announce that she has been working as a Grassroot ambassador for a month now. "Being a Grassroot  ambassador is not difficult at all, it's the same as talking to people on a regular basis." she said, "The only thing that closely resembles a challenge is that sometimes, people take time to understand exactly how this platform works." When asked if there is one particular benefit of being an ambassador that stood out for her, she replied, "This has made very popular in the neighborhood". She represents Elias Motsoaledi informal settlement.
