Early mornings bring to Tshega, vibrant voices, as dust dances around people`s feet as they disembark from their taxis. The painted African sky allows the sun`s rays to tickle my shoulders. I hear the uncontained laughter of children. Today the TCM family, (staff, volunteers, missionaries, and children), has an opportunity to share love, bringing hope and joy. I know this is going to be another fabulous day!
Tshega (TCM), established in 2004, transforms the surrounding villages, by offering quality education, skills development, and outreach programs. The surrounding villages have a staggering unemployment rate of 95 %. Women and Children are left alone for months when fathers and husbands migrate to look for work. Some never return, burdening the unemployed mother to support and feed her children. In these villages, nestled in the mountains of Bolubedu in South Africa, YOU as a volunteer can make a difference!
