Kgatlana, who's still recovering from an injury sustained during Banyana's successful WAFCON run, took time to donate her Rebel Girls story to primary schools in Mohlakeng. 

The story details how a young Kgatlana, who grew up in Mohlakeng, fell in love with the beautiful game in an environment where girls didn't play football.
