Matric Farewell

While the school year does not end until the first week of December, now is when many South African high schools schedule their graduation dinner and dance. Known as the Matric Farewell, it is a very formal affair. Not surprisingly, the cost of suitable clothes and the $35.00 (R350) per person fee pose a significant challenge for many families.

Masibulele moved into Ella & Penny’s Safe House not long after we met him when he was in grade 9. Now in grade 12, Penny recently took Masi shopping for his matric outfit and Ella drove Masi and his date to the big event this past Thursday. Thank you Penny, Ella, and our donors whose ongoing support has contributed to Masi having proper food, a safe place to stay, and the opportunity to complete high school. College is next!
