Samuel has just finished his P7 PLE exams at Good Shepherd Nursery and Primary school in Kameke. P7 is the last class of primary school. His school results are excellents, he is among the best pupils in class. Sam is 13 years old. In February 2019, Samuel will go to secondary school.
Samuel has been supported fully by Egoli Africa for a number of years now. Where we only pay school fees, school materials and transport for other children or students, Samuel completely depends on us. Samuel has had no contact with his parents for a number of years. They were completely out of the picture because of certain bad events that occurred in their lives. Recently, after a long search, we have been able to bring Samuel into contact with his mother, but it is clear that she can not take care of or support Samuel. We do, however, find it important to stimulate contact between Samuel and his mother from now on.
