Slindile came to live with us in 2009. Both her parents have passed away and her siblings were unable to take care of her. She had not been to school before she came to live with us so we had to start her in Grade R when she was 9. She is now doing Grade 3. She does find school quite hard but always gives her best and never gives up. Although she often finds things tough she always tries and so usually succeeds at what she is trying to achieve.
