Recently, the home admitted young people between 12 and 14 years old who have never been to school before. We took this as a big challenge that we needed to tackle immediately to assist these young people by introducing them to a formal education. We have started a home schooling programme with the help of a student educator who dedicates her morning hours offering her skills in meeting the needs of these children. We are truly grateful to this volunteer for her dedication in educating our young people. The progress is amazing and these young people are showing a lot of interest and are now confident and ready to engage in a normal mainstream.
The challenge now is a stipend for the volunteer to cover her travelling costs to and from the home. We also need stationery, chats and other teaching material to keep the young people interested. We then to the public for financial support for without education these children have no future.
