Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

What Is The Life After The Primary Level?

Mzesa Day Care Centre register pupils who come from families with problems, majority of the pupils are orphans and the few are lucky to have parents come from a broken marriage. This in turn hinders their foundation, therefore most of the pupils come when they are below average. Due to the teachers who are hardworking and their motto is to impart something into these pupils, they really change. Once they reach the upper primary, they look promising but one thing we keep on asking ourselves, what is next after the primary education to these kids as poverty seems be their mode of life. Majority of the pupils in the slums can not afford to go beyond their primary education level due to the poverty they are in.
