Sabie Social, with the help of various sponsors, is giving back to the community with the Jersey Initiative.
Sabie Gxxdfellas (Goodfellows) is a production company that consists of 4 young men from Sabie, namely Thabiso Mashego, Sandile Malikane, Kholwa Mabuza and Peter Mabuza.
“Our mission and objectives as Goodfellas Productions are that we would like to be the bridge that gives a platform to our local talented upcoming DJs, Producers & Singers/Rappers. We try to do this by promoting events that give them an audience of a wide range of people coming to support the event. We also want to create new events and opportunities in a safe environment that helps young people develop a sense of purpose through their talent, and also to use our positive influence to help the youth build self-esteem and skills for success. We also aim to encourage self-reliance by providing an opportunity to build their capacity and support networks to act on their own choices and sense of responsibility,” Thabiso said.
“With the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is difficult to host events to raise funds. But, we still try our best to support our community. We managed to buy 20 jerseys for the kids at Lindani Primary School,” Thabiso said.
“Sabie Spar has been helping us since our first event that happened on September 30th, 2017, called Sabie Social Experience. They are still helpful when we need their assistance. We appreciate everything Sabie Spar has done for the community of Simile and Goodfellas Productions. Sabie Caltex, under the management of Goodmore Madombi, owner and operations director at Sabie Caltex, also support us in our endeavours. Thank you to Sharon Nkosi, Smangele Mbhungelwa, Sipho Mohlale and the Rocks Tavern. We appreciate all the help we can get,” Thabiso concluded.
