To the 120 or so young German guests who shared the lives and homes with South African host families all across our beautiful country over the past few weeks / months:
we hope you had the time of your lives!
We hope you made friends forever, that you are taking home beautiful memories and a little bit of our culture as well…
We hope that you will share "ubuntu" as you experienced it in our country with others when you are home again.
Hug your parents for giving you this opportunity to have been an exchange student.
Do not forget you SA host family – send them a lovely "thank you" email or letter.
You will be missed, your place here will be empty…
We hope you will tell people back home that South Africa is a land of hope, where we are striving for a better future 🙂
To all our host families who opened their homes and hearts to these youngsters who were far away from home :
Thank you! You were wonderful!
