I can see hope again – Millicent’s story

February 9, 2017

Millicent Moatshe is a young mother in her twenties. Upon completing her high school a few years back, she did not have money for college and had to live with her boyfriend in order to get the money for school. Her boyfriend left her in the middle of her studies, leading her to drop out of school because she could not pay the fees. She felt lost then, and had no hope in her future. For livelihood, she started staying with another boyfriend, and took up a lowly job. She eventually had children, but she still felt helpless, and life was meaningless. She got to know Light and Love Home in 2014, and learned about our charitable and social services in the settlement. She thought about the many young mothers in the settlement who were in the same plight as she and wanted to commit herself to helping them. After having finished a course on computers, Millicent became our computer class instructor when Light and Love Home set up the class in mid-2016. Millicent used her knowledge to help the group of young mothers and we managed to approach and help more than 20 young mothers within 6 months. Their lives were also greatly helped and changed with Millicentís assistance. In this new academic year, Millicent would be going back to school with 9 other young mothers! They will all study at a College in Mamelodi. They are so excited and thank Light and Love Home for our assistance. Now they have rediscovered the meaning of life and they see hope and a bright future.
