Help with school fees for a deserving kid

Hi, I'm Vibeke. I live in Cape Town with my husband and two children. I'm setting up this campaign on behalf of Vuyiswa Mkhango, who is our housekeeper and carer.
Vuyiswa lives in a flatlet on our property with her two sons. We are looking for help in respect of her youngest son Ndivelele (7).

Ndivelele was originally staying with his aunt in the rural Eastern Cape but by age 4 it became apparent that he was being neglected, left alone all night, not fed enough.... Vuyiswa and I arranged for him to come to stay with us and he arrived in January this year.  

Our neighbourhood has a very well-respected Government school, Sweet Valley Primary. It is highly sought after and not easy to get into. 

When the time came for me to apply for my daughter to be admitted to grade 1, I also applied for Ndivelele on the off chance that we would be lucky and get him in. We were so happy and surprised to learn that he has been given a place. 

It will make a HUGE difference in Ndivelele's life to go to this school, as opposed to a rural or township school. It will mean that he will be well-placed to move onto a good high school and university. In turn, this will make a massive difference in his mother's life too. 

We are looking for help to cover Ndivelele's school fees and uniform expenses for the coming year starting January 2024. The monthly school fees are ZAR3300 (South African Rand), which at the time of writing this is US$170/ EUR162/  GBP139 per month. 
The fundraising target we have set will cover school fees for the entire year of 2024.

We live in one of the most unequal countries in the world, where my kids get to attend world-class schools with incredible facilities, while underpriveledged children receive a vastly inferior education with few opportunities resulting.
I want to do everything I can so that Ndivelele can have the same opportunity as my daughter Sophia. Any help that we receive will go directly towards Ndive's school fees and stationery/uniform expenses. 
Pictured is Ndivelele, and also Ndivelele and my daughter, who are virtually siblings at this stage and call themselves 'twins'. 
Please help me make a massive difference in this great boys' life and in turn that of his family. 
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Every little bit helps.
