The Month in Pictures #2

It was Melvin Sambo, a Ranger from Londolozi, who stood under the Digital Tree of Knowledge and said to a group of Good Work Foundation students: “Don’t let fear get in the way of your dreams.” Be it a fear of speaking English, a fear of using a computer mouse for the first time, a fear of setting a table, or of going to a big city. A fear of sharing a poem with the world. A fear of having confidence in ourselves. In February, fears were overcome. Our group of students, educators and facilitators put themselves out there. And smiled. And laughed. Well done team. Enjoy the month in pictures.

There were also a couple of “less serious” fears that were overcome in February. There was no way that we weren’t going to share these:

Real boys wear pink

Real men get over their fear of pink – of course they do. Havny, Abna, Matthew and Benzel in their new pink GWF shirts
