Our desire is for our Lesedi learners to gain critical 21st century skills. They come from such a low educational base and their social world is dysfunctional at best, with many of the learners basically raising themselves. The only way to influence these learners is to connect deeply with them on a relational level. They need to know they are seen, valued, and loved. They need to know we truly believe in them and their ability to make something of their lives. This cannot be taught. It can only be felt. Man is not a machine. These learners have been fearfully and wonderfully made by a loving creator, God. We aim to treat them as such and trust they will know that through the way we relate to them.
