Lina’s living her dream

Lina Mthombeni has always dreamed of being a teacher. But when she matriculated in 2015, she was devastated not to get a university pass. She didn’t have money for college either, and took a gap year.
But in October 2016, Lina received a call that would change her life: Cotlands had accepted her application to facilitate early learning playgroups in Draaikraal, in Mpumalanga.
“At first I was terrified about being an early learning facilitator (ELF)! But Cotlands sent an ELF to train me. Now I understand how to conduct the stations and lessons and I enjoy my work more than anything. I’m proud of what I’m doing and thank Cotlands for believing in me and seeing my potential.”
Thanks to all our donors for helping Lina and other ELFs live their dreams.
