“My name is Magic Dlamini, a former resident and product of the Rhema Children’s Village. I was raised at the village for more than 15 years of my life and was blessed enough to obtain my matric in my last year in 2006.
The Rhema village taught me a lot about life (I did not know how to cook and clean but learnt all these basic essentials in life), education (I was not really serious about education until I was motivated and encouraged by other children and staff) and religion it was here where I really learnt about God and how to pray, it is the reason for which I am and the very foundation of what I have become, I am a proud university graduate and working for one of the top companies in South Africa.
Without the guidance and acceptance of the village, I do not think I would be who I am.
