Graduation July 2010


On Thursday July 22 fifteen young men received their graduation certificates after completing our twelve week rehabilitation programme. For the first time every boy who started the course finished it. Well done.
To start proceedings the boys entertained their guests - parents and staff members -
by singing some action songs in Zulu and Sotho. This was followed by some very lively dancing which set up quite a sand storm.
Reverend Goodenough Mthembu gave an inspirational speech, telling the boys that God would always be there for them. He wanted them to know that I Care staff would also be there to help if they ever needed it.
Cedric and Jenni-Lyn presented each boy with his certificate and a gift, after which everyone enjoyed the final item on the programme - some of the male members of our staff dressed up in frilly skirts and pretty tops and Lucia donned pants and a shirt and they preformed their own special dance for us. They received a standing ovation from the guests.
Some of the graduates will be staying with I Care, living in our houses in Illovo and some will go home to their families but one thing is certain, each of these young men will go into the world again with a happy heart and a spring in his step. We wish them well on their journey through life.
