The University of KwaZulu-Natal shared a beautiful compilation of three mothers celebrating their daughters’ graduation, and it will bring you to tears.


KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa – A mother carries her child for nine months before she ever meets her. Every moment after she is born is filled with love, pride and joy. She nurtures and protects her, teaches her important things and prepares her for a world where she will face many obstacles.

In many families, she will be the first to get through university, the first to conquer the corporate world and the first to step up above the poverty line.

In South Africa, many mothers work tirelessly to put their children through university and the day they graduate is one filled with so much pride and joy.

The University of KwaZulu-Natal has been hosting their graduation ceremonies and put together a compilation of mothers dancing and celebrating their daughters’ graduations.

Watching it brought tears to our eyes.

“These are the joyful moments we live for! This is what UKZN Graduation is all about! The jubilant celebrations, the singing of clan names, the sounds of ululation, every tear. This is what it’s all about.” – University of KwaZulu-Natal

The videos were filmed at UKZN Spring 2019 Howard College graduation ceremony in Durban. Take a look below. How did you celebrate when your child graduated from university? Let us know in the comment section.
