In 2015 I left Limpopo and my family and moved to Gauteng in search of better opportunities. Moving to Gauteng was the biggest and bravest decision I have ever made. Coming to a new environment and home was challenging and I am so grateful that I found Ithuteng. Through Ithuteng, I was able to form new relationships and settle into a new world. I left my biological mother in Limpopo but God has been so good to me and I have been blessed with family figures who have had a huge impact in my life.

I started attending the Ithuteng afterschool programme, while I was in high school. I used to come do my homework at Ithuteng and always had help form the volunteers. They not only helped me with my homework but they taught me about self-care, discipline, time-keeping and having aspirations for the future. Ithuteng is not only a place to do homework but also where children hear about the love of God. Every Friday we used to attend a Bible study and this is where I came to know God personally, I got to recognize who God is, welcome Him into my heart and made an eternal bond with Him.

Thanks to the amazing programs and volunteers at Ithutheng I passed my matric and qualified with a BA degree in Anthropology and Sociology. I went on to do my honours but needed network connection and Ithuteng was able to provide that for me, giving me a platform for my dreams to come true and I now have my honours degree. I have decided to give my time back to Ithuteng and I help the grade 6 and 7’s with their Mathematics and English homework. The programs at Ithuteng helped me create a better version of myself and I believe it will continue to help the children in the community reach new heights.

Ithuteng provided me with a safe place and a second home, not only helping me with my academic hopes but also helping me through my personal problems.
Through Ithuteng all dreams can come true. The Sky is the Limit!
