Karabo's education fund

Karabo's education fund

Personal message

The story of Karabo Monyela starts in Limpopo, in a small
place called Mankweng. Two years ago, he and his single mother, Agnes, moved into our spare room so she could help around the house. Karabo, back then could not understand or speak a word of English, let alone read or write.

There was not much hope for him having an academic career at all. I have never been more happily proven wrong in my life. In these past two years Karabo has become fluent in English and has learned to read and write, and even catches some
Afrikaans.

In lockdown we spent a large amount of time to help him improve on his reading and math skills. Karabo, besides being a fast and eager learner, is in simple terms- a very bright kid. 
The problem Karabo is facing now is that at his current rural-like school he does not receive the attention he needs to move forward academically.

 From this year he is allowed only two school days in a week because of capacity restrictions. This has stalled his academic progress to a big degree.

We would love to help Karabo by sending him to a private school, named Curro Roodeplaat, which is next to our estate. It is the closest and easiest institution which provides schooling in English. Curro has generously granted Karabo a 20 percent bursary because of his circumstances. The yearly fee at Curro has thus been reduced to R49000. Accounting for registration and school clothes R55000 would be needed to fund him for this year.

This opportunity could change the trajectory of his life completely. Karabo has always had a dream to become a vet. This dream used to have a sad reality behind it but with the help of friends and family, we might be able to give Karabo a chance. 

Any donation which you might be able to give toward his Education for this year would be appreciated so much.
