Captain Xolisa Campaign

Personal message

Xolisa Shenxani wants to become a pilot. He dreams of flying the biggest planes in the sky as a commercial airline captain! His plan is to train via the South African Air Force’s pilot training program as this is free. For this, Xolisa must reach certain minimum academic requirements.

Xolisa shows a lot of academic potential and works very hard, but his previous school, with a teacher to learner ratio of 1:69, was hindering him. His mentor tried to move him to a better public school for two years without success. Xolisa therefore had to be moved to a private school at the beginning of 2018.

Xolisa’s progress is tracked via the school’s bi-termly progress reports and via his mentor’s daily conversations with him. This is to ensure that problems can be discovered as early as possible.

Xolisa lives in a township in South Africa. His mother passed away when he was five years old and since then he’s been under the care of various relatives. Private school fees are out of reach for Xolisa’s family.

For Xolisa’s last two years of school, he requires financial assistance for the following:
School fees R121400
Textbooks R3400
Stationery R1000
School transport (26km/d at AA rates) R35000
School food (porridge, homemade sandwiches, peanuts and bananas) R21300
School clothes R3500
Internet access R2200
TOTAL R187800
Private fundraising -R58000
SHORTFALL R129800

If only 55 people pledged R100 per month for two years, the shortfall would be covered!

Thank you for your support!
