My name is Christine Wilkinson. I am raising funds to keep a little 5-year-old girl in school.
Her name is Likamva Vayisi. She resides in Hole-in-the-Wall in rural Transkei with her parents and older sister. Only 32% of children in the area finish school and 84% of Grade 4 pupils cannot read to understand. The community, therefore, approached a local teacher to start a Montessori Preschool so that their children can have a sound learning foundation, their literacy be improved and they can rise above the poverty in which they are trapped in. They gave the teacher an old rondavel and Ncinci One's Montessori School was born.
The school's only income is from sponsors and donations and it is a registered NPO.
Likamva started her Montessori education in February 2019. I met her in April this year when I went there to paint the school. She is progressing very well, but does not have a sponsor for her 2020 education.
R6000 will cover her Montessori education as well as two daily nutritious meals, a daily calcium supplement and de-worming tablets. All donations made will be paid directly to the school. As Nelson Mandela said: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Thank you for considering my request to help change the world.
*As per the campaign creator's request, funds raised will be transferred directly to the school.*
