If you know me, you probably know that education matters a lot to me. I'm an educator myself, and I believe that people deserve the best chance to get educated, even when their paths through their studies are not ordinary.
Covid has disrupted the lives of so many people, and I recently became aware of some young South Africans who are so close to finishing high school, but may be prevented because their parents lost their jobs during covid. I am raising funds to help these students finish high school.
I am starting with one young girl whose fees will be R1300 per month. That works out at just under $1000 for one year. I'm going to begin by raising the money to cover one year of her school fees so that she can begin the 2022 school year without worrying that she might not be able to finish. My goal is to raise more for additional students, including her brother, if we are successful.
