Manelisi Zuma is a young South African with above average potential and specific language difficulties.

Manelisi lives with his parents and younger sister in Willowton, a semi rural area just south of the city of Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. He loves and rides horses, but due to his 'reading and writing' difficulties he is yet to be in a place where he is able to read and write about this aspect of his life. Gladys Zuma is Manelisi's mother, and is also frustrated. She knows something is wrong but does not know what it is...

He is one of South Africa's many learners who is falling through the cracks in the state education system. Manelisi's challenges can be addressed; if Manelisi could secure a place at Capulum College his challenges in 'reading and writing' can be addressed.

This young man will be an asset to South Africa's future, BUT he first needs your help to finish his schooling at Capulum College. If you are in South Africa you can EFT a donation to Friends of Capulum, Nedbank, Account Number 1065542135, Branch Code 13432500, ref Manelisi Zuma.
