An Atteridgeville woman has gone out of her way to support her niece’s dreams of taking to the skies by baking biscuits and selling them to pay towards the flight school tuition.
Doris Temba has been baking biscuits to raise the money needed to put her niece through flight school.
She sees her niece, Tshepang Ralehoko, as her own daughter and when the money they had put together to pay for flight school started running out, she decided not to give up without a fight.
“She is so passionate. You should see her eyes when she talks about aviation, she just changes,”– Doris Temba
Doris and her niece put their heads together and decided that selling biscuits could be the answer to the challenge. Both are good at baking.
“My mom and my aunt started teaching me to bake when I was four years old.”– Tshepang Ralehoko
Doris has been baking and selling biscuits to help generate the funds needed for Tshepang’s flight lessons at Blue Chip Flight School at Wonderboom Airport, Pretoria.
A friend designed a pamphlet advertising the biscuits and Doris posted it to Facebook. Soon afterwards, orders began pouring in.
