If there’s one celebrity who is determined to keep girls in school, it’s Bonang Matheba, and she’s at it again after announcing a massive new project
Bonang has teamed up with Global Citizen and Procter Gamble for a docuseries that will be airing on National Geographic in 2019.
The series, titled Activate, was announced on social media and will be a six-part special that is aimed at keeping young girls in school.
The docuseries will be looking to tackle poverty around the world by drawing attention to some of the factors and challenges that are faced by some of the world’s most disadvantaged communities.
Pharrell Williams, Gayle King, Usher (all of whom performed at Global Citizen Johannesburg) are part of the series along with our very own Bonang who will be taking guests through the inner workings of the massive global festival.
Bonang has had her heart set on educating girls for as long as she’s been in entertainment
Not only does she run the Bonang Matheba Bursary Scheme, but she’s also determined to take 300 girls to university by the year 2020. With this in mind, the Activate team couldn’t have chosen better ambassadors for their cause.
Bonang announced her partnership with great delight when she said: “In 2019, we continue our mission to KEEP OUR GIRLS IN SCHOOL! So excited to be part of #ACTIVATE, a six-part documentary series with @natgeochannel, @proctergamble, and @radicalmedia that will take you behind the scenes of Global Citizen! Coming this fall to National Geographic Channel.”

The trailer has already received rave reviews on Instagram although it’s unclear which “fall” Bonang is referring to (for instance, fall/autumn 2019 begins in April for Southern Hemisphere nations while it kicks off in September in the Northern Hemisphere).
With this, her own line of lingerie, and releasing her very own documentary, it looks as if Bonang is determined to conquer.
