Help Save Unity College

Unity College is a school for special needs students that is located in Johannesburg, South Africa.  Due to the  need for small classes,  fees are  appreciably high.  The harsh economic climate has since  forced some students to  leave the school.  The significant reduction in student body numbers has had an adverse effect on the financials of the school, as the school is funded wholly by parents.  The school has reached a point where it cannot operate sustainably.   This school has helped a lot of children over the years and it will be devastating for the kids  to have the school close down. 
The school is exploring various  rescue plans which will see the school not close, and still be able to  maintain the staff compliment that is the life blood of this school.
For this to be a success, the school needs to operate for at least two  months before  any formal rescue program can take effect.
The school is in desperate need of  bridging finance to sustain operations for this period of time.  In actual fact the school needed  the money yesterday.

If you or anyone can find it in your heart to assist these special kids, do help. There are 64 kids left and if this school was to close, it would have a huge impact on their futures.

Details of the school are on the website.
