Thanks Giving Call Out

Many international students are left with the deep feeling of homesickness and exclusion during the Thanksgiving Weekend in November in the USA. Sadly, this is the time when people are supposed to be blissful and looking forward to the weekend, however, many are left in a vacant university or college dorm. Our plea to you is to open up your home to welcome one or two more guests who are WK alumni in university or college in your area, to come and enjoy a proper Thanksgiving with your family. If you are willing to help, please contact Lwazi Ngwenyama at or sign up here
