Sithem­biso truly an education cham­pion

Eyethu Baywatch - - LETTERS • IZINCWADI - OUMA RIEKIE

YOUR ar­ti­cle about young Sithem­biso Khu­malo's cam­paign to pro­mote education among un­der­priv­i­leged learn­ers re­ally touched me.

Here is a 15-year-old schoolboy who took it upon him­self to do some­thing con­struc­tive to help out his peers.

Re­al­is­ing that his school­mates are bat­tling to fully grasp in­for­ma­tion in the class­room be­cause of their lim­ited knowl­edge of the English lan­guage and start­ing a drive to col­lect dic­tio­nar­ies for the many who can­not af­ford it, is a clear in­di­ca­tion that this is a think­ing young man with com­pas­sion - a true fu­ture leader.

He de­serves full sup­port for this mag­nif­i­cent ini­tia­tive.

So let us dig up our dic­tio­nar­ies and place them in the box at Em­pan­geni's San­lam Cen­tre (next to the Tourism In­for­ma­tion Hub).

We can't let this boy and his cause down.
