Readibereka. We are Hands On.
Initiative by Organisation Hands On
‘Readibereka’ a term derived from the Sepedi language, one of the local dialects in the northern parts of South Africa. The term ‘Readibereka’ loosely translates to ‘We are Hands On’ in English. It’s an interesting approach to capturing the essence of our mission and goals through a meaningful term in a local dialect.
‘Readibereka’ reflect the organisation’s commitment to actively engaging and participating in various programmes to drive social change and improve the lives of individuals within their community.
