Learning the value of diligent work to achieve dreams

15 year old Tendai is special. He is always looking for ways to improve life on campus, both for himself and for others. He has grown to be a hardworking boy who is always ready to help anyone who needs it. He likes gardening and wishes to venture into farming in the future.

Tendai has also been maintaining the lawn around the premises without being told to do so. He has managed to keep it neat and green. When Uncle John noticed Tawanda’s hard work he decided to reward him with some money. Upon receiving his token of appreciation, like the positive thinking boy that he is, Tawanda thought he could use the money to start up a chicken project. He has now realised that he needs much more to do this. Now he has taken the money to the office for safekeeping while he saves more so he can buy himself a bicycle.

Tendai’s positivity and will to do great things that has inspired all of us. We wish to have these dreams and more fulfilled for all of our children, and to help them cultivate ways to achieve those dreams.
