Further education and training - some success stories

Thanks to the generosity of our donors we now have six vulnerable children and adolescents who have been able to return to full-time schooling or attend training colleges. And, as word spreads, more and more children who had to abandon their schooling for socio-economic reasons are asking to go back to school or get some skills training.

The children include Oratile, Keiterile, Onalenna, Neo Sekoba and Neo Jabane from Selibe-Phikwe and Oduestse from Bobonong. Oratile, pictured below, started training in book-keeping and IT at the beginning of 2011 and now works full time for Mothers for All. It is fitting that she is also the orphaned granddaughter of our very first mother to be recruited.

M4All_news_OratileNeo Sekoba, who is doing a social work certificate, has just got 89% for her last exam and is now setting her sights even higher. She plans to apply for a bursary so that she can attend the University of Botswana in 2013. Oduetse is in his first year of a three-year auto mechanics course and is working hard. He has many plans for his future once he is qualified.

Our mothers are not standing by with Tswharelo having recently finished a book-keeping course and now also working at the Mothers for All head office and Dwanie, who is a young mother from Semolale, completing her school leaving certificate in Francistown. Another mother has recently enrolled in school for next year.

Mothers for All would like to take this chance to thank all the donors who have given money to this project via our GivenGain donation portal.
