How we help

Oscar – Bigger than that

Oscar was born with a rare fatal genetic illness, MPS 6. At 17 years old he stands just 113 cms high, has aluminium screws in his left leg, recently had a cornea transplant and has survived two bone marrow transplants and a ten minute cardiac arrest.
Despite all of this, he has discovered a thrilling talent for hip hop and developed a powerful and unique style of motivational speaking and stand-up comedy. His message of overcoming huge obstacles and turning adversity into triumph is guaranteed to not only inspire people, but because of his talent, humour and charm, will also truly entertain them.
This dynamite small package forms part of Zinto's performance line-up.

Eish Hade – Sneaking into business

Eish Hade, three young entrepreneurs from Soweto who design and make their own sneakers recently announced their first retail deal.
Sifiso Dlamini of Eish Hade came up with the brand name by accident. It stems from the moment he decided to start up the project. So focussed on his vision was Sifiso, that he accidentally stood on a friends foot only to apologise by saying sorry, or 'hade'. Eish Hade was born.
With a stunning new range of sneakers, Eish Hade has also become the official footwear for all activation teams at Zinto.
