Funding & Fundraising

A large number of currently enrolled learners come from severely disadvantaged backgrounds, with families often affected by ill-health, unemployment and the burden of caring for extended family on SASSA grants. As a result, many are unable to pay all or part of the fees charged. As we are a public school, families may apply for school fee exemption, However, due to the rising cost of running a hostel, we are unable to offer any reduction of fees for the hostel. For several children, if they are unable to stay in the hostel, they are unable to get to school and we thus appeal to charitable organisations, private companies and individuals for assistance in the form of sponsorship, to provide these children with the specialised education they desperately need and deserve. 

As its main drive to assist families with fee payment, the school runs its “Sponsor-a-Child” programme, where sponsors contribute funds to fully or partially cover the fees of learners. The “Sponsor-a-Child” programme has been in operation since 2004 and the school is most grateful for the support received thus far. 

The school seeks donations from a wide body of charitable trusts, national and local service organisations and individuals and is proud of the regular and valued support received from many of them. The school prides itself on keeping donors fully informed as to how their money is spent and the benefits derived.  

The school is a registered Non-Profit and Public Benefit Organisation and is able to give South African donors Section 18A Tax Certificates. Any serious potential donor is welcome to apply to the school for a copy of its latest audited annual financial statements.
