FLY is a non-profit organisation that provides mathematics tutoring to secondary school learners in underserved communities.
FLY offers a unique platform for young professionals to volunteer their time and expertise as tutors and mentors to empower less-privileged youths through education.
Tutor sessions are hosted at the JL Zwane community centre in Gugulethu (Cape Town) and in Alexandra Township (Johannesburg). These centralised locations allow FLY to draw students from many schools in the neighbouring townships.
The FLY program is focused on ensuring learners complete Grade 12, elect mathematics over mathematics literacy in grade 10, obtain a bachelor pass in Grade 12, attend a tertiary education institution, and ultimately qualify as a professional.
We have undertaken to support FLY financially on an annual basis.
FLY recently launched a bursary trust that will sponsor deserving students in their tertiary education. We were one of the anchor sponsors for FLY’s fund raising dinner for 2017, which raised a significant amount of money that will be used towards their operational costs and bursary programme.
