The futures and economic stability of South Africa’s 12th graders will be decided by early December. They are one week into taking their matric exams, which will determine what job and career opportunities are available to them, for the rest of their lives. Our Net Buddies have been studying hard and I could not be more proud.

I couldn’t imagine a more fitting way to introduce Infinite Family’s new blog than with the powerful words and imagery of our Net Buddy mentees.

I am very proud to present the work of our award-winning Net Buddy poets from Tsogang Sechaba, Tau Rapulana and Nkosi’s Haven. Their poems on the theme of South Africa’s Human Rights Day poignantly express the legacy of that struggle and its enduring significance in the hearts and minds of South Africa’s youth.
