I am a qualified educator and art consultant. I'm in the process of putting together an art program that I will present to disadvantaged youth at no cost. I will contact different charities and shelters to offer the program to the youth in their care. I am fundraising for the costs of putting together the program, art materials for the classes and my travel costs to and from Pretoria, Cape Town and Hermanus where I will be holding the art classes.
The crowdfunding will be towards presenting an art programme for disadvantaged and unemployed youth in the Overstrand, Hermanus, WC, SA. The aim is to help those without matric who are creatively talented to use their artistic skills to generate an income with the vision of completing their school studies and create opportunities for possible future careers. The timeline will be determined by when the programme project starts and how outcomes develop and grow.
Reaching my target will support my aim to help those without matric who are creatively talented to use their artistic skills to generate an income with the vision of completing their school studies and create opportunities for possible future careers. Donations would also help to buy start-up materials for these beneficiaries to make decisions on which career path to follow according to the programme guideline entitled '12 Creative Jobs without matric'
Funds raised will go towards the following:
1. Administration costs (including travel from Pretoria to Cape Town and between Cape Town and Hermanus) - approx R 10 000.00
2. Programme guidelines and art materials for youth: approx R 25 000.00
3. Project presentation and follow-ups: approx R 5 000.
