ECD Centre Back to school

Help our kids get ready for gold stars and ‘A’s!

As any parent knows, the start of a new school year comes with lots of extra expenses. But most parents only have to worry about getting two or three children ready. Imagine what it’s like trying to kit out a family of 64 growing boys and girls!

We’ve gone through last year’s school uniforms – letting down hems and sewing on missing buttons – so that any item that still has some wear in it can be handed down to the younger kids.

Even so, we have a long, long shopping list. School shirts, pants, dresses and skirts … jerseys, blazers and tracksuit tops … socks and shoes and PT clothes. Then there’s new lunch boxes to be bought – and the ingredients to fill them. Money for transport. And extra tutoring to help kids who’ve missed a lot of school in the past catch up to their peers. It all adds up to thousands and thousands of rands.

That’s why we’re really hoping we can count on friends and supporters like you for help.

Your gift of any amount would be such a blessing. Not only will you help buy much needed items. But, by contributing towards their education, you’ll help ensure our kids get the bright new future they deserve.

So please help if you can, by making your donation right now online. Then, when the end of term rolls round and our kids bring home glowing reports, you’ll be part of making their success possible.

Thank you so much.
