Peni Moi

The Cleaning Wizards is so much more than a catchy name for a business.

The group made up of mostly high school dropouts, unemployed youths, and reformed criminals was formed under the leadership of Peni Moi – a young man driven by the desire to disrupt how society views his peers.

To make changes in the future, you have to change people now, says Peni, who hails from Ravitaki in Kadavu.

Determined to eradicate unemployment in their community, Peni and The Cleaning Wizards are changing public opinion, one yard at a time.

This is the story of Peni Moi.
