Sara Ndara, 14-year-old participant at KAYEC’s Rundu youth centre, helps younger Clara Katewa with her math homework as a peer mentor, 5 August 2016. The top student in her class, Sara dreamed of joining a youth club like the ones she saw on NBC - but there were none nearby until KAYEC moved to her location under FNB funding. Small afternoon sessions give Selma a chance to express herself that she doesn't get in her class of 47: "You’ll be given a chance to say what you want - like to talk about teenage pregnancies and peer pressure. They’ll learn more about them themselves than watching on television." Clara’s mother, Leticia, says her daughter has taken a new interest in school after just a month-and-a-half with KAYEC's staff and older teens: “She was having trouble with math, but now I can see there’s improvement."
