Philasande, a bright young girl from a very poor background needs your support to continue her schooling
Philasande (Phila) has almost completed her first year at a top independent school – the Global Leadership Academy (GLA) in Jeffreys Bay, Eastern Cape Province. Being accepted into and attending this quality school was a dream come true. This was all possible through the kind support of The Angel Network!
Phila is the oldest of 3 girls from a very poor home in Hankey. Her mother is a seasonal citrus farmworker and has lost the sight in one eye due to an illness. The Covid crisis slashed her seasonal work hours to only half. With this meagre income, the family can hardly keep afloat and could never dream of sending their eldest child to a good school.
The conditions at Phila's old school were harrowing. There were 60 children in a class, the quality of education was extremely low, and there were no sports or extracurricular opportunities.
She took the transition to the new school by the reins and adjusted very swiftly. The teachers and learners alike all have come to love Phila and her friendly heart. She is one of the best in her grade in terms of participation and effort. Everyone agrees that she has an above-average aptitude.
Due to the long distance between Hankey (Phila's hometown) and Jeffreys Bay (school location), she applied to live at the school hostel and has been accepted for 2021. This will allow her to have better study conditions and participate fully in school life. The hostel is only open Monday – Friday each week. She will need to travel home to Hankey on most weekends, which will incur additional transportation costs.
She will be very happy to provide regular updates about her progress and build a relationship with potential sponsors.
The cost for Phila to attend the Global Leadership Academy in 2021 is as follows:
School fee: R22 800
Hostel fee: R24 200
Transportation: R12 000
TOTAL: R59 000
