Siya is currently in Malaysia on his soccer tour, so in essence, we have achieved the goal! However, we have borrowed the shortfall of his tour money to ensure he was not barred from going on tour. So we need to continue for a bit longer! In effect - the soccer club has been paid the full amount. Any funds that come in now will go to paying us back. Deposit slips are available on request.
My name is Rosie Campbell and I live in Cape Town. I work with Manelisi Mapukata, an inspiring organic farmer from Gugulethu, father of Siya. I have known Siya for 5 years now and watched him grow from a small boy to a resilient teenager. He is thriving, despite his poor circumstances. This year his father sent him to a school that offers this wonderful tour. The costs are way beyond the family. I know he will be an inspiration to his fellow community and show community members that one can succeed, and rise above the poverty cycle.
Siya's school is going on a soccer tour to Malaysia. His class will go and leave him behind due to lack of funds. I know that he will be a beacon of light in his community, showing that things can change and the cycle of poverty can be broken. His family is often doing things in a new way to show people they can succeed, they can rise above difficulty, This inspires me to support him.
The official school deadline for the first R5000 is 31 August, and approximately R9000 per month for September, October, and November.
Impact of donations: The exposure to travel, to new cultures, and the experience of travelling with the school team will give Siya a chance to grow exponentially, the value of which is not quantifiable. That impact will be shared with all his friends in his community.
