Pretty Yende has captivated opera
lovers from all over the world. She is the young and internationally
acclaimed South African soprano who made her spectacular recital debuts at
the opera venues of Teatro Alla Scala in Rome, the Metropolitan Opera in New
York and the Wigmore Hall in London.
In 2013, President Zuma, bestowed one of our country's highest honours; the
Order of Ikhamanga in Silver on Pretty Yende. This award is in recognition
of her remarkable achievements both locally and internationally as an opera
singer and musician and as a role model and ambassador for our country.
Amazingly, this lady is from our town - Piet Retief. As this fresh start and
new beginning of 2014 starts ...
I would like to proudly welcome Pretty Yende as Uzwelo Children's Home
Ambassador. As a our Ambassador, Pretty will bless the lives of countless
children in need... resulting in one of the most fulfilling experiences of
her life. We are so honored to have you as part of our team!!
Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi
marked World Aids Day by visiting Uzwelo Children's Home on the 1st December
A candle which represents HOPE was given to the Deputy President by one of
the Uzwelo Children. This gift was a token of our appreciation for the
Deputy President's visit and also for remembering our children - the lost,
lonely, little and the least..

abuse, crime and injustice. We have the true light. May this as visitors
