    Beste Linda en kollega’s

    Dankie-dankie vir die briiljante werk wat julle doen! Ek wil baie graag met julle gesesl en hande-vat…ons is ook ‘n wonder-like span hier in die Wes-Kaap wat besig is met navorsing te make met die bevordering van “resilience” en tieners (Hoërskool-leerders) wat te make het met die uiters ontmagtigende Delft-omgewing.
