Anele's Story  



Anele, a Xhosa speaking Grade 2 learner, started with the StreetSmart - Klipfontein Primary School Aftercare Programme at the end of March 2015. Because he struggled with the basic concepts of English, he struggled with the majority of his subjects.


Due to the language barrier, it was extremely challenging to communicate with this learner. He was shy and withdrawn, lacked self-confidence and did not participate in class or group activities. As a result of the concerted efforts and six months of intensive individual attention of the aftercare teachers in liaison with Anele's class teacher, he made good progress and is now able to express himself in a second language.


Anele has gained confidence, is a much happier boy and since he now has a good grasp of English, he participates in class and group activities. Nowadays, according to his Grade 2 class teacher, he wants to be heard!

Mohamed's Story


Mohamed is from Manenberg. He came to Learn to Live, School of Skills, at the beginning of the second term in 2015. He is sixteen years old and doing the 4-year Panel Beating course. Manenberg is a community in the Southern suburbs of Cape Town where gangsterism, drugs and alcohol abuse are rife. When he came to the school he was using drugs on a regular basis. The school referred him for counselling. He stopped using drugs and attended counselling sessions regularly. He is a keen learner who is doing his best to make a success of his life.

Mohameds Story

Through the professional and fatherly guidance of Rodney Abrahamse, the Panel Beating instructor, Mohamed not only gained knowledge in panel beating, but also learned that it is important to work hard, be dedicated and use every opportunity in life. He really gives his best in the panel beating workshop and is eager to get his qualification.


“We thank you for being our partner again in 2015! The impact that your contribution made on the lives of children and youth is immeasurable.”


– Nelly Burrows, Salesian Institute, Director of Operations and Development
