Magicland Day Care & Home-schooling – reasons for starting the project: While Margaret and Swannie were safe-house parents, they looked after twins, who were at the time 13 years old and only in grade 5. Margaret helped them with their home-work and taught them every day. The improvement in their school work was so immense that the head master asked what they were doing to help the children. The twins went on to complete their matric and studied further (One a degree and The other one a beautician diploma) and are now very successful. One of them is a director of her own PR and Advertising agency while the other one now lives in Australia and works as a beautician. Through this experience the value of good education and help for children was learnt.
