Irfan Keshavjee grew up watching his parents balance between running their family business and doing community work.
During school holidays, he kept himself busy making hangers at the back of the dry cleaning shop, operating laundry machines and serving customers.
“I grew up watching my parents gain a lot of joy from engaging their know-how for a common cause,” says Mr Keshavjee, whose family operates White Rose Drycleaners.
“They rarely complain. If they don’t like something, they go out and do something about it. From small stuff like trimming the grass outside other houses on our road, to setting up a project to provide vocational skills to abused girls or helping local health and education initiatives.”
