WHAT OUR LEARNERS AT EMAGQABINI ARE SAYING

“My time at Emagqabini helped restore my confidence in myself. I used to perform poorly in school and I didn’t think that I could actually pass a grade. But the tutors at Emagqabini spent time with me and showed me that my school work was not difficult, I just needed to focus and work hard. Now I am passing my grades and I enjoy school.”

My favorite program was the tutoring and visitors. The tutors helped me reach my goals and the visitors made me envision myself in the future and encouraged me to reach my dreams because their stories were motivating, and they, like me started from humble beginnings.”

I remember what you told me [Linda – a tutor]…that I should write a book about my life and I was like “who is this short guy telling me to write a book?” [laughs]. I’ve only made sense of it now,  you were telling me to take hold of my life and write my own story, not other people’s stories. I’m very grateful for that advice.”
