Congratulations


Qaphela is the new head boy at High Stone School in Phoenix. He is the first black boy to be given this honour.
Qaphela enjoys school and loves his sport, especially cricket but he is a football fan and supports Pirates.
He left home when he was 10 years old, stayed on the streets for more than two years before coming to I Care in October 2007. He lived in one of our houses in LowerIllovo and attended our special school.
Last year he returned to his family and I Care enrolled him in High Stone School in January 2010 as part of our "aftercare" programme. His promotion to head boy this month is a tribute to Qaphela himself and to the dedicated work of the I Care teaching staff and his house-parents,
We congratulate this remarkable young man on his achievement.
