""When I grow up I want to be a social-worker."" - Anonymous

Little feet BIG dreams!

It was a very exceptional day in the lives of 12 little humans. Saturday was their graduation day and their teachers repeatedly said that it is a day of CELEBRATION. Their time at the Ncedolwethu Educare Centre in Mfuleni has come to an end, yet it is just the beginning of their academic venture.

The anticipation and excitement was visible on the little graduate's faces shortly before the graduation ceremony began. They all came dressed in their best attire. The girls had their hair done beautifully and pranced around in their gorgeous white dresses. The boys wore crisp white shirts and black ties.

The ceremony took place in a make-shift church (visible in photos). There was much praise and song. The children showcased their knowledge proudly.

Soon after the little ones walked inside in single-file the tears were visible in the eyes of parents.

The kids were called up one by one and received their graduation certificates with appreciation and awe. Each child introduced themselves to the crowd and shared with us what they would like to be when they grow up. Some of their answers were:
"A policeman." "A fireman." "A nurse." and even "A social worker."

We gave a each child a gift-bag within which were brand new, shiny school shoes.

Thank you "Entrepeneurs' Organization" for giving these little feet a good "foundation" for their first steps at school.
