#StudentSaturday – Meet Simangaliso Tembo

Simangaliso is a 10 year old girl who lives with her paternal grandparents, as sadly, her mother passed on and her father has been absent. Her grandfather is unemployed and unable to pay her school fees thus, without support, it is very difficult for Simangaliso to access school textbooks, school lunches and a complete uniform.

Simangaliso is currently in Grade 4 and her favourite subject is English. In order for her to get to school everyday, she has to walk for two hours, to and fro. This determination to be educated, shown by Simangaliso, is one of the reasons why us at SHE, are so proud of her!

Despite facing such critical challenges, Simangaliso dreams to be a teacher one day and aims to emphasise the value of education to others, due to her passion for learning!

Simangaliso’s grandparents are happy to allow anyone who wishes to assist her, to visit them anytime.
