On the weekend of the 28th of April 2016, Vuyolwethu Mekile was invited by the Enke Trabilizer programme to attend a celebration event in Cape Town on the successful completion of her 9 month Cap project.
The challenge was to start or make changes in their local communities, Vuyolwethu decided to start a library, poetry sessions, and donation of books in her Community. She started a mini library in her home. On Saturdays it became a well-known get together among all ages in her community where she resides.
Vuyolwethu is truly an example of a young lady with passion for literacy, poetry, and making changes in her life and the life’s of others.
Favourite message and quote by Vuyolwethu are “Dreams delayed are not dreams denied.” We wish Vuyolwethu good luck in her final year at Xolani Senior Secondary and wish her all the best for the future, and we are very proud of her as our school.
