Some comments from children..
Lungile 14 years old: I have accepted y mistake and am willing to do good things sometimes to make me happy. I have a dream and vision that I never had before I started attending Childline. I am afraid to get involved with girls although they find me attractive. I am growing without a father figure and I need guidance of how and what it is to b a man.
Khulekani 15 years old: There are so many changes in my life since I stared attending Childline. It was difficult for me to come to Childline every Friday because I thought its just a waste of time. Then I have realized it is very important to attend Childline because I learn new things every time. I have new friends and now I know how to communicate with other people. I have learned how to manage stress and make good choices, especially with friends.
Ntuthuko 14 years old: I am very proud to be at Childline. It really helped me a lot and it has changes my life. I have learned a lot from Childline and now I know that if I want a better future I must not do such things. Childline has changed a difficult situation in my life. I am happy because at last I have found someone to talk to who can listen to me, tell me good things and correct my wrong ones. Now I am confident and strong about myself. I know I did wrong but now I have changed because of Childline.
