Mighty youth

How appropriate that this year's Community Builder of the Year was also the youth category winner.

Stuart Nhlathi, 20, represents the promise of the new South Africa. He is enthralled by science and technology and since the age of 13 has been motivating fellow students to improve themselves.

His Institute of Science and Technology at Matlosane, outside Klerksdorp, is a thriving home to others who want to boost their abilities in these fields.

He himself has devised useful and innovative appliances such as a microwave- cum-hotplate-cum-radio.

Nhlathi has shown that passionate kids in even the most deprived areas can elevate themselves and their fellows. Hola Stuart, Hola.
