Hey, I’m Moudy Ngwedzeni Mudzielwana, An Environmentalist my profession and the advocate of Human Development. Growing in Rural Areas, it was normal to wake up and face the natural environment without any concern. We would go hunting and get fruits as if they will be there. The rural life was just about looking after one another and little dis we know we have accountability to look after the environment. And when I studied Environmental Sciences at the University of Venda for Science and Technology, a major epiphany hit me in the face like an economic recession. I knew I had to do something.
Never again would I participate in activities that would impact on the natural Environment and I knew I needed to change. I didn’t know what, just that I needed to change everything – including communities from doing what was natural life.
I started with the one thing I could do, and that was the Formation of Tshikovha Environmental and Communication Consulting to assist with implementation for the National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998 and other Environmental Management Acts through ensuring any entity that intends doing any projects or service listed in the legislations can access Environmental Assessment Practitioner that is able to collaborate with and apply for the Environmental Authorization.
May purpose is to help people find reasons to comply with environmental legislations and help graduates and entrepreneurs find the best versions of themselves to participate in the mainstream economy and live reasonable life. The aim is to connect with corporate business, government, community members and mining houses every day, help them comply with the environment and make the environment to be in the forefront of their values
The curiosity to understand what goes into business whilst working for various companies assisted me to become an ardent Entrepreneur. The company grew to be the hub for graduate’s development and that taught me human development in all aspects. In 2016, I registered Tshikovha Green and Climate Change Advocates Pty Ltd which incorporates greening and sustainability into environmental management. My personal social mission to address environmental challenges in a manner that can create jobs, alleviate poverty, integrate graduates and create opportunities for entrepreneurs, I formed Tshikovha Graduates Academy, an None profit organization.
