Sponsor a Child

How it works:

Thuthukani’s school fees for 2020 are set at R220.00 per child per month.

In 2019 only 30% of our parents were able to pay school fees of R210.00 per month. We are aware that most of our learners come from poor socio-economic backgrounds, and as a result the School Governing Body writes off all unpaid school fees every year. This leaves Thuthukani with a large shortfall in the budget that is set to meet each learner’s basic educational needs.

As our ongoing fundraising project, we are focussing on the “Sponsor-a-Child” project whereby we request from members of our community that a once-off or monthly donation (any amount) is made to our school on the same lines as paying school fees for a child/children.  This is a way that we try to build a regular source of smaller donations that we can utilise towards covering all those aspects that school fees should.

Seeing that we have so many children whose parents cannot afford to pay school fees, we call the project “Sponsor a Child” but we do not allocate the donation to a specific child. We allocate these donations to the school fees account.  These donations are then managed to the benefit of all the children in school, for example, to purchase learning and teaching support material, to arrange special events or outings and to assist with covering the running costs of the school.

Any amount that can be used towards paying school fees of children with severe to profound disabilities enrolled at Thuthukani Special School will be greatly appreciated, and will be well managed by the school governing body.
