Tshegofatso is in grade 10 this year at New Hope Special Needs School in Pretoria.
He comes from a large family without a dad. His mother and siblings live in Seshego, a township in South Africa. The township is far from his school so he needs to live in the hostel.
Tshegofatso is a paraplegic and moves around through the use of his wheelchair.
Thsegofatso is an A-student who continues to achieve top academic results. It is his dream to work in the business world and has big ambitions.
His school does not offer Maths, and this would prevent him from being able to study at a University.
However this did not hold him back. Thsegofatso took it upon himself to arrange extra classes every Saturday to equip him to write the final Maths exam at the end of Matric in 2021.
I ask you find a place in your heart for this special young man and help to contribute to:
1. His extra maths classes every Saturday
2. His hostel fees to facilitate his transport to the special needs school
It is Tshegofatso's strength of character, persistence and hope that makes one want to help, in any way, to give him the opportunities he deserves.
