This video shows the road leading into the Bokamoso Life Centre.  Because of a high water table the road is often muddy and sometimes impassable.  The greenish building we come to first is Othandweni Day Care and Guest House.  Around the corner is the gate and entrance to the Centre.  As we enter, the building on the right is the kitchen, computer lab, art room and offices.  The big building straight ahead is the Big Hall where some classes and performances are held. To the left we can see the new sanitary flush toilet building being constructed and next to it the “Nicro” building housing the main offices and a classroom.

There is a certain urgency that drives Bokamoso students.

 

Young people in more affluent situations think, ‘I missed this opportunity, but another will come along.’ In our community, we realize Bokamoso is a big opportunity that may not come my way again” – Bokamoso Graduate

The Embassy of South Africa in Washington, DC has been and continues to be a supporter of and a partner with Bokamoso.

 

South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool spoke at the 2014 Bokamoso Youth performance at  George Washington University about the powerful role youth hold in the world.

You can transcend your circumstances and the future is waiting and that is the significance of this partnership between a remote township called Winterveldt and this global capital called Washington, DC. – Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool, Jan 2014
