During the gala dinner, inspiring speeches were made by different persons who had graced the occasion. Sinesipho Rabidyani, who is a beneficiary of the Ubuntu Education Fund, shared her inspiring story with the audience. She said that when she was young, her father used to drink, thus making her to dread going home from school.
