Mandlenkosi Bula

My name is Mandla Bula, I was born and raised in Cape Town in the township called Khayelitsha.

I'm 29 years of age. I am an ex-prisoner and spent 7 years of my life in prison because of the wrong choices I made in life. Time in prison was not a waste because that is where my life was changed through faith in Jesus Christ. I was released back into society in 2013.I got an opportunity to make my dream come true the moment I was released into the Lord's Acre Halfway House and became part of the Ambassadors Missionary Service. FRANCO helped me get my driver's license and I applied for the PDP license to carry passengers. FRANCO helped to clear my fingerprints so I could live my dream and become a tourist guide. They also paid for a tourist guide course, and I am now a qualified tourist guide.

FRANCO is not just an organization but the hope to many disadvantaged children and youth of this valley.
