Mpendulo is 19 and in the 11th grade. His father has passed away in 2010. He lives with his mother and two younger brothers. His mother is not employed and doesn’t have a source of income. In spite of her challenges, she works tirelessly to care for her children. Somehow she got a tiny solar panel to charge a little light so her boys will have light to study at night when they get home school. We started assisting Mpendulo in 2013. Without a high school education this Mpendulo and his younger brothers do not have a chance of a decent life and neither will his mother when she gets too old to take care of everything.
