Last year Masizi Ostrich joined the CAST team as a Youth Development Intern in the rural community of Appelsbosch. An experienced rugby player, Masizi played for the Midlands Rugby Academy. Masizi first became passionate about development work after he started coaching rugby. Many of the kids he coached didn’t have kits and battled with tough home lives.
However, everything changed when Masizi was injured and returned home to Appelsbosch. As a member of Appelsbosch Baptist Church, Masizi got involved with CAST through his Pastor, Andrew Dube.
As Masizi explains, “I want other people’s lives to change as much as mine.”
This year Ostrich has moved to CAST’s Head Office in Westville to gain more experience in community development. He will be interning with the various CAST departments, learning more about how CAST works in the communities.
CAST relies on our amazing team of interns to accomplish much of the work the Lord has called us to do. Our interns are supported by donors who believe in their calling and want to support CAST’s mission to mobilise the local church to reach out with practical compassion to empower, transform and redeem communities.
