Mpho Tjope is an author, motivational speaker, and Albinism activist who founded Albinism Advocacy for Access, which specializes in giving access to young people and making their lives easier. He speaks in schools, communities, universities, and churches about Albinism, and mobilizes sponsorships for glasses and sunscreen. His organization has programs that lift the spirits of people with Albinism, and seeks to change the perceptions and attitudes of others so they understand that albinism isn't inability; with the right support, we can also contribute to the economy and assist others.
