Helping people grow
"I have known that I wanted to be a social worker since I was small. I've always known where I come from and what I wanted to achieve with my life. I've worked hard and I deserve to be where I am today. Thanks to the support of CANEA and Friends of Thematically, I have been given the chance to give back to the community and to achieve my dream."
Mabuyi "Torres" Luna - Torres comes from her enormous interest in football - was born on 20 December 1992 in South Africa in the poor rural province of KwaZulu-Natal. She grew up with her mother and siblings in difficult conditions.
When Mabuyi was 4-5 years old, her mother took her to the Thematically orphanage to ask them to take care of her. Thematically means "our hope" in Zulu. When she was 6, her mother died. With the support of the Friends of Thematically Orphanage, Mabuyi completed her degree in social work at the University of South Africa, Durban in 2016. Her goal is to work with drug addiction and show that you can come from poverty and still change your situation.
