Mr Mduduzi Mahlinza , Mayoral and Communications Manager at the Mtubatuba Municipality said these meetings are a great initiative, “we get to equally understand other stakeholders, cross learn and exchange information.

”Mrs Eunice Seleke, Project Officer at the NMCF had this to say: “I am happy that there is a way forward. Our main goal is to advocate for the rights of children, We cannot do it alone, so partnering with organisations such as Star For Life is great, because we can see the change.”
