It takes those with a vision to enable others to create their own, with the plight of great disparities in our society surfaces many more other social ills of many kinds, various magnitude, and different shapes, and in order to remedy these social ills- interventions and initiatives ought to be taken by a variety of individuals, bodies, and institutions to play a role in the reconstruction development program of our society.

Teens With Vision is an organization founded by Neo Cholo, a grade 10 learner- a young man from Mamelodi who prides himself in being an agent of change, he along with his vanguard of other visionary teens are leaving their mark wherever they step. Some of the essential initiatives they run include Sanitary pads drive and relief initiatives– where they acquire donations that they share with those who are least privileged, the recent initiative in this facet was seen when there were cases of flood in some parts of Mamelodi, where many where left homeless, and without clothes and food, the organization made strides and collected clothing and food donations from their various stakeholders and partners and gave to those who were affected.
