Story of the Month

  • Sisanda’s gift

    Every day when eight-year-old Sisanda gets home from school, she changes out of her uniform, eats her lunch and plays a game of umlabalaba with her grandfather. They have so much fun flying their “cows” around the board that she doesn’t want to stop. But then he reminds her that she wants to become a bank manager one day when she grows up.

    “How will you do that if you don’t go to high school?” jokes her grandfather.
