The octogenarian has single-handedly built a hospital in her hometown ravaged by civil strife which severely scarred the country.

And it is fair to say that Sandisiwe Mazibuko, the founder and creator of the internationally acclaimed Fabrosanz, ticks all these boxes and even more.
Inspiration & Lifestyle
It takes an incredible willpower and strong mental vigour to overcome a traumatic experience such as rape. Some rape victims never recover fully from it while others manage to heal but the emotional still remain etched in their minds.
Teaching school kids and learners has never been a walk in the park, more so when one is head of an entire high school where the majority of kids are vulnerable learners from disadvantaged backgrounds and communities.The irony of the Sandown High School is that while it is situated in Sandton Johannesburg not far from Sandton City, known as “Africa’s Richest Square Mile”, over 60% of its learners hail from outlying areas such as Tembisa, Soweto and nearby Alexandra Township. This is the story of 47-year-old Edith Mamosebo, the first Black female principal at the Section 21 schools which is characterised by many challenges.
