One of our newest additions to Matunda is Mitchell. A shy little girl of eight, she started with us the beginning of this year, as her single mother can’t take care of her. She’s quite sociable, well-liked by the other kids, and easy to get along with.
As we had a sponsor for her, she was able to start school quite quickly in the preschool class and did quite well. As she was a late starter, she had some catching up to do, and did exactly that.
She just had her “graduation” and will be starting primary school in January. At the ceremony diplomas were passed out, and it turned out that she was first in the class.
To say the least, we are really proud of her!
