An Education for Asive

An Education for Asive

Personal message

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. - Mark Twain

UPDATE:

GOOD NEWS: Asive has started school! The school made a place available for October and November for Asive and she started 1 October

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: 

The name Asive is of Xhosa-African origin and means "May she hear us"

#asivegoestoschool 

Asive is nearly 5 and lives in Soweto, Johannesburg, with her grandmother Joyce.

Following treatment of cancer to her eyes, she has had both eyes removed. There are very few options for blind children in Johannesburg to get a good education - especially affordable and within a reasonable distance to home.

The funds will be used for her school fees, transport to and from Soweto, school uniforms, books and school trips while she studies at Holy Family College in Parktown, Johannesburg. This wonderful mainstream school has offered 7 blind scholars places for 2020. Asive is one of them.

Whilst most people take education for granted, it has been a journey to find a school that can accommodate Asive. Without this funding, Asive will quite simply not get an education at all.

The confirmation letter from the school and proof of school fees  are all avaiable on request. Calculations are based on the below:

Asive Nobula Education Cause

Asive Nobula Education Cause Logo

My name is Suzie Bowling and I am raising funds for a little girl to get an education. Her name is Asive and she is being raised by her grandmother, a cleaner in my office. Due to cancer of the eyes, she has had both eyes removed. She is nearly 5 years old and desperate to go to school. After months of searching, we have found the perfect school for her. It is a private school and will give Asive the best chance in this world to have a fairly normal life.
