Mxolisi Pounde from Emdibini Combined School could not contain his excitement after he received a full uniform and a scientific calculator from Thomas Baloyi.
Baloyi was a former learner of Emdibini Combined School.
When asked how he feels after receiving his school uniform, Mxolisi thanked his donor for buying him a scientific calculator.
“At least now I own a scientific calculator, ” said Mxolisi who also confessed that it was for the first time he owned one.
He further mentioned that his learning will now become easier.
Mxolisi comes from a needy family with six siblings and all raised by a single mother and a grandmother.
He touched everyone’s heart in the office when asked about his other wish in life.
“The only thing I want now, is to see my family being transformed into a better family,” said Mxolisi who also vowed to study hard to change his home situation.
His teacher, Mr Maswanganyi said the donation of the uniform to Mxolisi was a great relief.
“I once visited his home and could see that the situation did not look good,” said the teacher who applauded Baloyi for identifying Mxolisi.
Mr Maswanganyi added that he will continue to monitor Mxolisi performance and also encourage him to do better in all his subjects.
