Schoolyear 2017

It's already the third week of the new schoolyear for the kids of The Farm. Like every year the Lunga Foundation and Zulu Beadz made sure every child got a new uniform and schoolbag to go to school.

Sam

There is a new girl at the Farm: Sam! Sam is deaf and can't talk. The owner of the Farm enrolled her in a special school for deaf children. During the week she will stay in the schools hostel and in the weekends and holidays she will come back at the Farm. The first day at school was a little scary for her and she had hard time saying goodbye. But she's getting used to everything now and is having a good time!

Gift

Another boy at the Farm that goes to a special school is Gift! Last year he started at the Mzansi Mayfair Academy in Johannesburg, an academy for soccer talents with a chance to become a member of a professional team. He did very well this year and scored the two winning goals in the finals of a tournament. If all goes well he will start in a new team this year and play the "Castle League". This gives him the chance to become a member of the national team under 19. Old volunteer Carlijn Mertens sponsored him and paid his school fees.
