Diploma ceremony!
Diploma ceremony!

Dear supporters!

I am writing this report with the privleage of having just attended a diploma ceremony for one of our Grade 10 boys!

And with the help of this project all three of our Grade 11 & 12 learners for next year should be able to go to a private academy to maximize the opportunity for them to succeed and go on to further education!

Improvements were noted in all of our high school kids and as i'm one of the ones responsible for assisting in their homework and study programme I can certainly vouch for their hard-work and dedication! 

We have been so lucky to have the assistance of a maths & computer tutor every Saturday at the youth centre. A total of 11 children have benefitted from this so far! And how wonderful to see improvements in school marks - one our our Grade 6 boys DOUBLED his percentage score in maths from 35% to over 70% in the last term! AMAZING!

We continue to assist all children with their specialist educational needs - one of our boys was diagnosed with dyscalculia and dysgraphia and we are working with the school to make sure he can still ACHIEVE with the masses of potential he has! And I can guarentee you that he will...!

We are also very excited to announce that a number of 12 children are now recieving group occupational therapy at the centre every week! This has long been an initiative we were hoping for and it is just wonderful to see that it has now come to fruition! 

So PLEASE continue to support this project! As we go into 2014 I can tell you we are still looking for assistance to fund school fees of 23 children from age 5 (Grade R) to 19 (Grade 12) attending 5 different schools! Our end of year anniversary party fundraiser will also be taking place with a sole purpose to meet these goals!  

Dream. Believe. Achieve - anything is possible with YOUR SUPPORT!

Please give what you can today!
