Sanele Hadebe is a leader with effective and great communication skills. He believes greatly in the power of knowing how one passes a message than the message itself to maintain good relations between teams and that assertiveness is not aggression but the skill of reason between the speaker and listener.
Hadebe is an associate facilitator and partner of the Democracy Development Program. Through DDP, Hadebe has improved a lot in his communication and facilitation, he uses the Art of successful conversation personally and professionally and this has helped him grow immensely in his facilitation.
“Development is what drives me, restoring hope, faith, joy, confidence and a sense of fulfilment in people are all my driving forces. I also love growth, fairness, respect, entrepreneurship and being a good role model in society.
I do what I do because I love people, I love life, I love justice and everything above. We have too many parties politically driven individuals among youth and the older generation, who have not much interest more the growth of man in general but of political interest”.
Hadebe is one of the DDP success stories, he has conducted almost 10 community dialogues in different communities in the KZN region using the organisations methodology.
Today he provides training at national level in youth camps, having trained in KwaZulu Natal (KZN), North west, Northern Cape and Eastern cape through different methodologies acquired over time.
Contribution during the fight against Covid19 in the KZN region.
Hadebe, is part of an organisation called Youth Inter-Active based in Kwa-Mashu. Their quest during the COVID19 lock down is to help in the food relief initiative for families hard hit by the current situation and new regulations.
Their main targets are child headed households. Through many attempts of trying to get grocery parcels, it was not an easy road to walk on. However, our first achievement of 50 grocery packs, was taken by the councillors through the council. Through the assistance by local political party offices, we were able to assist 45 families in different communities in Ntuzuma and Inanda.
Some of our efforts are seen by good citizens like the Lewis family who saw our initiative on Facebook and helped. Through their help, we were able to further assist 7 families in Kwa-Mashu consisting of 5 members on average. We still have not stopped and are still putting the word out there for more partnerships and assistance.
