The Mkhulise Foundation is a registered NGO that works to create an enabling environment where youth come together to empower and nurture each other and learn to take charge of their sexual and reproductive health.
Mkhulise means “Raise a Child”. Peters and her friends meet with groups of children at schools and orphanages to give motivational talks. The foundation gives young children a platform to talk without judgment and to uplift confidence.
The Mkhulise Foundation also arranges pads and sanitary items for young girls.
Peters is trying to help eradicate suffering and vulnerability of children in her community. She feels that no matter how little she has, she always has something to share and give.
