Soyisile is a no-fee government school in the heart of Khayelitsha (Cape Town).
Like most no-fee township schools, it is underfunded and overcrowded and they need all the financial support they can get from private funders. The school caters for scholars in Khayelitsha and surrounding areas.
Many of the children come from single-parent households or live with an extended family member. To alleviate some of the financial burdens on the sparsely resourced school, and to improve the overall learning experience and spirits of both the learners and educators, we have selected Soyisile as one of our core CSI beneficiaries. In recent years, we have replaced the aging and impractical classroom furniture with new desks and chairs, and provided the school with extramural equipment (sports, arts, and audio equipment). Every cent and minute saved as result of our contributions has improved the general mood in the school, allowing resources to be redirected to other needs.
Notwithstanding the noticeable difference in the children, education and parents, there is still a lot more that we can and will do for the school.Read more
