Over 122,000 children live in child-headed households in South Africa. Director Warren Mac Carthy traveled to a charming little town called Piet Retief to film the story of Nqobile Mdletshe who was orphaned at age 15 and chose to raise her younger sister single handed. With barely enough money for food, and working at a local supermarket while still a student in school, Nqobile’s future looked bleak until she found out about a bursary program from Make a Difference Leadership Foundation. Her life would never be the same again. This mini documentary will go live in October / November 2016.
