Goals of the Programme
Our child sponsorship programme focuses on nursery schools and primary schools in townships. Goals are:
The nursery schools that we sponsor receive professional training, advice and guidance from our partner, the Centre for Early Childhood Development (CECD). The nursery schools are sponsored until they qualify for government funding. We then gradually withdraw our support until they can manage on their own. This takes on average 2-3 years. As soon as the school can continue without our support the CECD recommends a new nursery school for our child sponsorship programme. Please check the list of the Nursery Schools that we sponsor.
Waldorf (Steiner) Schools
The Waldorf schools that we assist are: Hermanus Waldorf School (nursery and primary), McGregor Waldorf School (nursery and primary) and Zenzeleni School in Khayalitsha (primary only). The schools offer a holistic education where each pupil is treated as an individual. There is much scope for creativity. Performing as well as fine arts are an important part of the curriculum. As from class 3 children are taught in English. This gives them a headstart in their further education. Please watch a Film about Waldorf schools in South Africa. One of them is Hermanus Waldorf School with a music class.
One of our sponsor children showcases his talent for music in Happy Hands:
Shopping with Recyclables
Children can earn 'points' by collecting recyclables: glass and plastic bottles and tins. At the Recycle Swop Shop they can spend their points on toiletries, second hand clothes and shoes, toys and much more. The points can even buy them a new school uniform and school equipment.
