Poor families in South Africa, like Emihle's cannot afford to access quality high schools in South Africa, so children like Emihle, regardless of how clever and upstanding they may be, can only attend non fee paying government schools, which are notoriously under resourced, have poor discipline, ill equipped teachers, a 40:1 learner to teacher ratio, and often drugs and violence. Donating to support Emihle's boarding for high school makes sure she is safe and nurtured during school terms.
Emile has a unique opportunity to attend a quality government girls' school that sees 100% of their girls successfully graduate from high school. Emihle has been accepted for 2020, and her school fees have been sponsored, however the school cannot support Emihle's boarding fees. Attending this school is an incredible educational opportunity that will change her future, and her family's forever.
Emihle will be the first person in her family to graduate high school and be able to access further education, breaking the cycle of poverty she has grown up in. Her mother is unemployed and her father is a labourer. Emihle lives in a shack in a squatter camp without running water or electricity. By going to a quality high school, in a supported and nurturing boarding environment, she will have the chance to change her future and that of her family's for the better. Help us help her.
