Can they dare to dream?

I wonder if you remember Kamo*, whom I wrote to you about late last year.

Kamo’s* a 10-year-old girl who lives at our Mamelodi Village. She’s given me incredible insight into the dreams of SOS children.

This brave little girl has experienced deep heartache in her life.

And yet she doesn’t dream of turning back the clock; or fame and fortune. She dreams of becoming a policewoman and protecting other children. 

So I’m writing to you today in the hopes you’ll click here to send your special gift today to give more children like Kamo the courage to dream.


And if you’ve already sent your gift – A VERY BIG THANK YOU!


But if you’ve yet to make your donation to help more dreams come true, please will you click here now to make your contribution online?

Kamo lost both her parents at a tender age and went to live with her grandparent. But when the grandparent died in 2015, she was left without a family or a home. It was a rough, confusing period for her.

But Kamo rediscovered her joy when she moved in with her SOS mother and SOS brothers and sisters.

And it’s thanks to the supportive community surrounding Kamo that she’s found the courage to truly believe that a better life is possible.

“My dream is to become a policewoman. I want to patrol the streets and make them safe for children to play. I need to be fit and good at running so that I can catch thieves,” Kamo told me with a serious face.


So please make your donation now and help more children like Kamo find the courage to dream.





Yours sincerely,

Sydwell Vushemakota
