Education in the Cape.
As we are based in the oldest black township in the Cape
Peninsula, it stands to reason that the majority of our learners
come from this previously disadvantaged community. However,
we are not prescriptive in any manner as to who may access
our centre, and through the years have met learners needs
and desire for improved skills or qualifications from right
across the racial, cultural and spiritual spectrum.
The main school programmes are at this stage largely funded
by the Western Cape Education Department (The WCED). However,
in order to continue offering most of the skill based co
which are not directly funded by the WCED and in order to
keep them affordable to the poorest in our country; funding
is desperately required. (The life skills acquired here are
often what makes the difference between food on the tables
or hungry tummies).
We hope you have been touched by the generosity of our
pioneers, or realised that an enormous need continues
to exist among
the poorest in the Cape Province. If as a result of this,
you or anyone you know wishes, and are able to assist in
any way, no matter how small, for a cause other than the
specific needs of the projects indicated above, please
feel free to make your contributions to:

We do not currently have a process in place to determine
the needs of individual learners requiring assistance or
monitor and check their progress, if they were
to be sponsored privately. However, if you know of any deserving learner who
is in need of better education and requires financial assistance we would be
happy to enrol such a learner and monitor his or her progress on your behalf
should you decide to sponsor them. Alternatively any general financial assistance
received by our institution will be used as the particular need or priority
at the time dictates.
