Zanele Lwana is a 16-year-old grade-12 learner at Bulumko Senior Secondary School in Khayelitsha. She's been attending SHAWCO's education programmes for the past three years. Lwana's written an essay to express her gratitude to SHAWCO and the students who have assisted her with her studies over this time. In the essay she writes:

"Our dearest teachers at the Saturday classes are like our parents. Some of us do not get the chance to talk to their parents, get love and tender care. The Saturday teachers' role is to teach us, but they all treat us like their own children, and would like to see us in better places. For some of us, it's hectic during weekends at our homes, so at least we do get the chance to get out and invest in our future."
