Education in South Africa is in crisis. The situation has been exacerbated by the recent lockdown and children in the poorest situations, risk being left even further behind.
The African Angels Independent School in Chintsa East gives these children a quality primary school education to help secure a better future for them and their families. Despite receiving no government funding since the school was established in 2012, the dedicated team at African Angels have managed to meet their financial commitments, through the support of long term donors and sponsors, and clever fundraising initiatives like the recent #88forangels. These funds are used to provide well equipped classrooms, qualified and experienced teachers, a properly applied curriculum and two meals a day, to ensure that our 142 children are ready to learn and grow to meet their full potential.
African Angels believe that a high-quality education will enable our children to become productive, employed and sound citizens of South Africa. They need your help to keep going.
If you share their dream of a productive South Africa, and you can, please support their Charity Golf Day on 20 November at Olivewood Golf Course and Private Estate.
There are multiple ways to get involved, either as a participant, a sponsor, or both. These are outlined in the Matrix below. This is just a starting point for discussions – if you have other ideas on how you would prefer to get involved and contribute to this cause, please contact Lou Billet by email on email@example.com.
Any support will be acknowledged in the event marketing programme before and after the event – the sooner you sign up, the more coverage you will receive. In addition, all sponsorships will attract a Section 18(a) tax certificate (donations receipt).
By taking part in the Golf Day, you will reap the business benefits of networking with the East London business community while also investing in the future of South Africa’s children.
Caroline Kruger, who works with their team, will contact you in the next few days to discuss any questions you may have and to chart a way forward.
