Minenhle Owethu

Minenhle is a joyful and friendly girl who lives with her grandparents in South Africa. Sadly, Minenhle's mother passed away, leaving her father as the sole provider for the family. Despite her father's best efforts, he has struggled to make ends meet. He brought Minenhle to live with her grandparents to better have her needs met. Life is difficult for Minenhle's family.

Many children living in this area do not attend school because their families cannot afford to pay the school fees. Through ChildCARE Plus sponsorship, however, Minenhle will be able to attend school, and continue her studies on an ongoing basis. Minenhle hopes to become a doctor one day. Minenhle enjoys learning math at school and in her spare time, she likes to play netball. Minenhle is very helpful at home and a great blessing to her family. She helps her grandparents by washing the dishes. Her favourite Bible verse is John 3:16 and red is her favourite colour.
