#GiveaHandUp to our new Grade RR's
Remember your first day going to school? Your new shoes, your new backpack filled with brand new stationery and that uniform that was just a little too big at the time? Well, now is your chance to help create these happy memories for 60 deserving Grade RR students. But we need your help to kit out our newest little Christel Housers.
#GiveaHandUp to our new Grade RR’s by donating essential school supplies, including school shoes, uniforms, a backpack, learning materials and educational toys, as well as fortified porridge that contains essential nutrients for growing children.
All of our new recruits are from households where the average income is less than R1 500 per person per month. So back-to-school supplies are a luxury many of our parents simply cannot afford. For as little as R150, R500 or R1200 (the price of a full starter kit), your donation will give our Grade RR’s a hand up on their 19-year learning journey with us. That is 14 years of formal schooling, from Grade RR to Grade 12, and 5 years of post-school support to help them escape a life of poverty for good.

*Please note: There is a possibility that the new Grade RR’s may only start as Grade R’s in January 2022 (5 years old turning 6), subject to final approval by the Western Cape Education Department.
