With Brave Wings She Flies

Sangje was born to a poor family. She was not able to go to school but had to ‘grow up’ quickly and take care of her injured father and the daily household chores while her mother had to go out and find some work.

Motso had to finish school in grade 4 and spent the next 11 years in a wheelchair, in and out of hospital. Her family spent all their money and incurred great debt. Motso defied all the doctors’ predictions and at 22 years of age, was finally able to walk again.

Sangje and Motso applied for the Captivating My First Job Assistant Chef program and started their journey to a brighter future in 2016 and secured their very first full-time job in a restaurant as waitresses and assistants to the head chef.

Now independent young women, they dreamed of owning and running their very own restaurant. With careful planning and hard work, these young ladies dreams will come true in late September 2017.

“Everything has been like a dream to both of us,” explain the girls. “We never thought that we could become so confident before we attended the program.”

All it took was a sponsor to decide to support each of these girls.  It’s costs US$1,300 to fully fund a girl through a MY FIRST JOB program, including all support costs which continue for up to 2 years after the program has finished – just to be certain things are working ok. And, their world literally transforms within 12 months. These young women can finally spread their wings and fly. With determination, bravery and commitment to work hard – she flies to new opportunities.
