After a year Lerato is back in studio to take her story a generation further. Lerato’s mom was a domestic worker. Sadly, both her parents passed when she was just 10 and she was adopted by her mom’s white employers. Through her journey between extremely different South African worlds she has become something of a shapeshifter whilst never losing sight of the woman within her. Proud to be her mother’s daughter, Lerato shares the generational wealth she hopes to pass down to her own children.

Robert Botha is a middle-aged white South African male who wrote a poem about a special person, probably a domestic worker, standing outside a gate in time. Don’t miss his pearls of wisdom on identity, connection, servanthood, and the power of silence. Enlightened doesn’t even cut it!

When last have you had someone speak for you or tell your story? It can be entertaining or flattering at the best or inaccurate and even insulting at worst. Workerstories.org decided to collect the stories of those often spoken for, in their own words, through creative literature. What more unbeatable way to embody experiences than through those experiencing them. Projects like these remind us how no one should be reduced to their circumstance, and that our modern-day Einstein or Steve Jobs could be hiding in plain sight… or more specifically, your lounge or local fast food joint.

Today we review a poem called ‘At Your Gate’ by Robert Botha. ‘White male’ can appear in many ways to be the opposite of ‘domestic worker’ but his piece is nothing short of haunting and insightful. A true testament to the beauty and complexity of the South African artist.

Nelly’s always been an intrapreneur. Intrapreneurship is the act of behaving like an entrepreneur while working within a large organisation. Lately however, she’s taken it a step further and is looking to gradually start her own cleaning business. Guess what that’s called… outrepreneurship? Whatever the term, Nelly knows more than a thing or two about it. From cleaning a floor to crossing it, this lady is certainly one to watch!

Is hope a sellable product? Is it a skill? Is it both? Either way, some seem to have it and some don’t. Better yet, some seem to know how to use it, while others don’t know where to begin to find it. So people sell it to us in the form of motivational speaking, like Tony Robbins. You can’t even really map who will have it and who won’t. Sometimes hardship triggers it and sometimes it’s from a belief that your life is worth more than what your comforts can offer. Either way, Bridget Moema has it in bucket loads and so does her protégé, 2017’s Miss Inspire SA Teen 2nd Princess Letlotlo Matabane. You might want to buy what they’re selling. A mouthful I know, but a worthwhile mouthful at that.

What does your domestic worker know about you that nobody else does? A slightly awkward question for us all, no doubt, but we recently asked it to a large group of 14-year old boys at St. John’s College… and truly remarkable things happened. We’ve invited their teacher Lizzy to chat about what went down.
