High School Bursary Project
We are based in one of the poorest areas of South Africa. Our campaign is to get high school learners from poverty-stricken families to school which they could otherwise not attend.
We provide school fees, transport, school uniforms, school shoes and/or toiletries including feminine hygiene products.
For the last 13 years we have provided services where they are needed the most to promote health and wellness and provide care and support services to children and families.
There is no High School in the area. The nearest High Schools are 25kms away in Knysna or 35 kms away in George and there is no public transport system.
Masithandane provides daily transport for 45 learners to these schools and provides full tuition, accommodation and supplies bursaries for several children. As a result of our Bursary Scheme, several children have graduated to tertiary education.

WHO WE ARE:
A Christian based ,registered non-profit and public benefit organisation located in the Eden district in Sedgefield, which is in the Western Cape province of South Africa We celebrated our 13th birthday in 2019. We build partnerships and work collaboratively with the public and private sector as well as local organisations in order to serve those: living in Smutsville, Sizamile, Fairview, Karatara, Elandskraal, Barrington and Farleigh who have been infected/affected by: HIV/AIDS and TB as well as widows, orphans and the destitute.
The campaign that we are currently seeking funding for is our Bursary fund. There is no high school in Sedgefield and the poverty-stricken children in our area can't get to school as there is no public transport to the high schools in the next towns. The Bursary fund pays school fees and provides transport as well as essentials such as school uniforms, shoes, feminine hygiene products and stationery so that the children can stay in school.
