Mkhanyiseli Primary School is located in the Nyanga township, a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. According to the 2011 South African census, 31% of those aged 20 years and older have completed Grade 12 or higher, 55% of the labor force (aged 15 to 64) is employed, 74% of households have a monthly income of R3 200 (USD250). Considered a 'low income-based' suburb, many of the families have difficulty buying uniforms and shoes for their school-aged children.
Since 2012, the Fund has donated thousands of school shoes and uniforms to Mkhanyiseli, and so far in 2018, 73 uniforms were donated and 102 pairs of shoes. We use a local vendor in Nyanga Terminus (local taxi and bus depot) to make the uniforms to increase economic capacity in the Nyanga. Thankfully, due to donations in April, the Fund was also able to sponsor a needed 5000L water tank to combat the water shortage in Cape Town. We appreciate the love and support to provide students (learners) with a token of encouragement to help them achieve their educational goals. All donations are welcomed, big or small.
