Complexities of Poverty in South Africa, written by Dr Snowy Khoza and published by Shedding Light Publishers, is a story of hope, courage and great faith amidst harsh realities of poverty in South Africa. In the book Dr Snowy also highlights complex issues of poverty, unemployment and inequality facing the country, which remain pressing issues in SA communities. It is a book with great leadership insights, possible solutions to complex issues of poverty in the country and a call for readers to take action against poverty.

Her passion for people development and community development is the primary inspiration behind the book and therefore used as an initiative to reignite the spirit of Ubuntu in SA communities. Dr Snowy hopes her story will continue to inspire hope in the hearts of many and help rebuild communities that are so desperately in need. She also hopes that this book will help struggling communities in South Africa, while teaching them the benefits of being active and philanthropic members of society.
