He also managed to get other good Samaritans donate building material for the family. “I can only use the energy that I have. It’s not about whether you have the money or not, it’s the thought that counts and the drive to do something good for someone else," he said, noting that he will soon start with the construction of a house for the family.
“I am hoping to start building them a house. What I have is not enough, but it can build them a decent home.”
Moroeng said he wanted to change the mindsets of many people who believed the environment in which a person comes from contributed a lot to their upbringing and success.
“I always say that the past must not determine what the future holds for us, as long as we are alive and have [the] brains.”
The Molokwanes - Koketso, 23, Kebaabetswe, 21, Keolebogile,18, Kamogelo,16, Kegomoditswe,14 and eight-year-old Olesego said they were grateful that Moroeng was willing to help.

"We appreciate what he is doing for us."
