Magadien

I'm a previously a high ranking 28 Gang leader and I turned my life around 16 years ago. My story is available in a bestselling book ‘The Number’ by Jonny Steinberg and a movie launched in Toronto Film Festival. Since leaving the gangs, I have dedicated my life to helping others. I'm a supervisor at Streetscapes, employing street people who through work and support now can rebuild their lives.

About the organisation

Khulisa Social Solutions

Streetscapes is a simple yet revolutionary concept. We harness job creation and care for our planet in order to address homelessness. Sales of organic veg from our gardens employ homeless people who have nowhere to go. Without an intervention, the hopelessness of their situation would likely result in many falling into downward spiral into drugs and crime - currently wreaking havoc in our city.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Khulisa Social Solutions.
