Sponsor a child
 

FOR ONLY R14 OR 1.50 USD PER DAY
Your sponsorship can make a world of difference in the life of a blind or multiply disabled child. It will ensure that a child receives specialized education, residential and medical care, 3 meals a day, a school uniform and shoes. Your contribution will guarantee a child an equal chance towards a brighter future. This is all our children ask for – a chance equal to that of the able-bodied child, so that they may have the chance to grow up with dignity and a sense of self worth.


R14 per day is the equivalent of 1.50 USD and equates to R5000 / 625 USD per year which covers the following costs for one child for one full year:
  • School fees & stationery
  • Hostel fees
  • School uniform & school shoes
  • 3 meals per day
  • Medical care
Other Sponsorship Options:
Once off contribution:
  • R350 covers the cost of school fees for a year for one child
  • R300 will pay for a child’s hostel fees and 3 meals a day for one month
  • R500 will pay for a new school uniform and shoes for one child
  • R250 will cover the cost of toiletries for one child for a year
  • R300 will pay for transport for a blind or multiply disabled day scholar for a month

Safe transport for our day scholars to and from school is a big challenge, as transport is becoming increasingly more expensive. Our blind and visually impaired learners cannot use public transport and our multiply disabled learners require special adapted vehicles to accommodate wheelchair access.


Payment Options
Direct deposits can be made either through EFT or paid into the School’s Bank account. You may wish to make a monthly debit order or a once off payment.
