AJ Foundation, a non-profit company focused on youth development and community upliftment, based in Lentegeur, distributed 140 Santa shoe boxes to Nazareth House and Marsh Memorial children’s homes, on Saturday October 29. Each box contained toiletries, clothing, an educational item, sweets and a toy. The foundation is the brainchild of youth leader and business mentor Jesse Julius and professional soccer player Cole Alexander who were later joined by Linton Henry. They formed the organisation earlier this year to provide opportunities for young people, enabling future generations of Capetonians access to tools needed to unlock their true potential through sport, education and various other platforms.
