Leonard Groenberg has made it to his final year of high school, and, like many learners in South Africa, is faced with the challenge of completing his school career despite a lack of resources.
Feeding a family of seven is no easy task, especially for families like Leonard’s. His father, Jacobus, has a temporary position at a local company, and his mother, Lena, is too ill to work. On the brighter side, though, Leonard is one of only four learners who passed grade 11 last year. He is determined to not only finish high school, but to further his studies so that he can help provide for his parents and four siblings.
To make life a little easier for Leonard and his family, The Stellar Foundation has given Leonard stationery and books, and upon learning that Leonard has to do his schoolwork in bed without a proper light, is helping to arrange a lap desk and portable light for him.
We wish Leonard all the best with his final year of school!
