Thandeka "Thandi" Tutu-Gxashe, Eldest daughter of Archbishop Desmond and Leah Tutu. Thandi is the Director, Stakeholder Relations, of the Desmond Tutu, "Tutudesk Campaign 2020".

Thandi discusses the "Tutudesk Campaign 2020”.  This campaign seeks to address the 95 million desk shortages in sub-Saharan Africa by providing 20  million of these portable Tutudesks to children by 2020. This will impact literacy, by allowing African children to uplift themselves, their communities and their continent by becoming more competitive through education. 

She shares her passionate about public health especially in the fight against HIV/AIDS and the advancement in the protocols being used in South Africa. 

She sheds light on life after Mandela in South Africa.  Thandi gives her thoughts on food insecurity and why she joined the Board of Heifer International South Africa.
