The star also said when she thought of all the hardships they went though this year and of every blessing they still have, she felt proud of her daughter’s strength.

Amzozo told the publication she was thankful that God had protected them the whole year and that her mom was blessed enough to buy her a car. 

“God is great. I am so happy and grateful for everything that he does for my family and that he made a way for my mother to do this for me. It’s an overwhelming feeling of joy that I have every time I look at the car and I will make my mother proud at school next year.”

20 nominated schools announced for Clover Krush Goodness 2019

Clover Krush Goodness Connie Ferguson

In October 2018, Clover Krush announced that the #KrushGoodness project had returned and the brand put out a call for South Africans to nominate schools whose children are most in need of school shoes. South Africans heeded the call and nominations were received in abundance.

ALSO READ: Lalla Hirayama Opens Up About Clover Krush’s Mission

The 20 schools that received the most nominations, which will be visited when the 2019 school year kicks off, are:


1.       Buladitshaba Primary School, Gauteng
2.      Thembalihle Primary School, Gauteng
3.      Kgotlelelang Primary School, Gauteng
4.      James Nkosi Primary School, Gauteng
5.      Boiketlo Primary School, Limpopo
6.      Mponegelo Primary School, Limpopo
7.      Moriting Primary, Limpopo
8.     Sandzile Primary School, Mpumalanga
9.     Mgwenyane Primary School, Mpumalanga
10.   Takheleni Primary School, Mpumalanga
11.   Livangeli Primary School, KwaZulu Natal
12.   Sikhona Primary School, KwaZulu Natal
13.   Iziko Primary School, KwaZulu Natal
14.   Zithuthukise Primary School, KwaZulu Natal
15.   Mzimhlophe Primary School, Eastern Cape
16.   Phakama Primary School, Eastern Cape
17.   Enkwenkwezini Primary School, Eastern Cape
18.   Intshayelelo Primary School, Western Cape
19.   Mokone Primary School, Western Cape
20.   Siyabulel Primary School, Western Cape

All learners within these schools will receive a brand new pair of school shoes, and by the time all 20 schools have been visited by the #KrushGoodness Krew 20 000 pairs of school shoes will have been distributed.

When the project first kicked off in 2018, the purpose was to show that adding a little bit of goodness every day has the power to change the world for the better. If we start our day with one good deed, it has the power to transform someone’s day, leading to them adding a bit of goodness to someone else’s day, and so the goodness spreads, ultimately inspiring a world of goodness.

It’s incredible just how fast goodness can spread, even when it begins with one small action from just one person. This is evident from the number of school nominations received for 2019; and the number of school shoes distributed in 2018 being 10 000, doubling to 20 000 in 2019.

Rami Chuene Clover Krush

Some familiar faces who will be joining Krush in spreading goodness at the various schools in 2019 are:

  • Connie Ferguson
  • Zenande Mfenyane
  • Rami Chuene
  • Lalla Hirayama
  • Letshego Zulu
  • Dineo Ranaka

Keep an eye out in January 2019 where a few more familiar faces will be added to the #KrushGoodness Krew…

We caught up with Connie Ferguson about her involvement with the project and why we all need to play a part in giving back and sharing goodness where we can.

What drew you to participate in the #KrushGoodness project?
I’m always keen to get involved in any initiative that makes a positive difference in people’s lives. I have experienced first-hand how something as important and necessary as school shoes can be a luxury when you can’t afford basic living requirements. As a child in standard 3, my brand new shoes were stolen while we were cleaning our classroom. I had to wear my small old shoes for the better part of that year as my parents couldn’t afford to get another new pair. Everything was budgeted to the last cent. So I know that feeling that these children are going to have when they receive their school shoes. I can’t wait to see the looks on their faces.

What are you most looking forward to about visiting a school 2019?
I’m most looking forward to seeing the reactions of the children. 

Are you involved with any other community or CSI initiatives personally?
To date we have been supporting existing programmes. We are in the process of setting up our family foundation, due to launch early in the new year.

Do you remember any celebrities coming to your school when you were a child? What memory sticks out the most for you and why?
I went to school in Botswana and the biggest celebrity there was the president. I remember the excitement when he visited my home town Lobatse to deliver food parcels. It just gives that comforting sense that someone cares. 

What is the one piece of advice you have for young fans of yours?
My advice to my young fans is to know that they are masters of their own destiny. God listens to prayer and sees ones’ heart. Your current situation does not define who you are and who you are meant to be, don’t be afraid to dream big and work very hard towards making those dreams reality.

What does 2019 hold for you?
2019 for me holds only the best and nothing less. I’m always striving for growth and to be a better version of myself, and I’m open to constant evolution.
