Even though he is 19 years old, Thabang had never used a computer before joining the Computer and Life Skills Program at Help Lesotho’s Pitseng Centre. Now that he has successfully completed the course, Thabang can use equations to calculate things in Excel which is something he never knew you could do before. Learning these skills and others was so important for Thabang because it will help him find work and give him an advantage when applying to jobs.

Above all, the life skills Thabang learned were life changing for him. He says his self-esteem is now high after learning about self-esteem, and he knows how to communicate with others.
