It’s not how me make mistakes but how we correct them that defines us. Rachel Wolchin
Sibulele Tshonshi, a 21-year-old mother of three, lives in Meadowlands, Soweto. Having her first child at 16 put an immense strain on her family, affecting her mother’s health. Sibulele, now estranged from her family after her third child, cannot support her children and neither does she have a care-giver who can look after them while she goes out on the hunt for work. Sibulele wrote to Mokapelo as her life has stagnated.
