Roy Moathlodi is very keen to provide workshops for the youth, whether school leavers or unemployed, believing that this is the way to provide the assistance that is so essential. He is a citizen of Langa, who was sent to school in Botswana during apartheid times and then returned for his tertiary education at the University of Cape Town. Having worked for the government in various departments, Roy decided to venture into Entrepreneurship, which he believes to be a real solution for many of the young unemployed of the Township, oppressed as they are by the lack of opportunities.
