uBambiswano runs a well-respected Saturday School programme in service of Black South African students from disadvantaged communities in Daveyton and Etwatwa. We currently reach 103 young people from Grades 6 to 9. Our educational approach is a holistic one: we work to improve the students’ literacy and numeracy, and we also provide opportunities for students to engage in sporting and cultural activities.
As an organisation, uBambiswano is committed to playing an active role in transforming society, and to making a meaningful contribution to education in our country. The students of uBambiswano (both former and current) have achieved academic and personal success as a result of their involvement with the Saturday School programme. It is these satisfying results that have motivated and energised us for the past 30 years.
In order to continue our work with these amazing children, we are constantly looking for individuals and organisations to sponsor their involvement with the Saturday School. It costs just R8 000 per year to provide one student with everything they need to participate (including teaching staff, stationery, transportation and outings).
St Andrew’s would love you to have the opportunity to sponsor a child this year.
