We trust you enjoyed your holiday season and that 2021 is off to a good start.
I wanted to share our final 2020 project report (see attached) with you. We hope you enjoy the photos, stories and statistics.
The project's mission is to create a generation of graduates empowered to uplift their own families and communities and we are happy to report that we hit all major goals and objectives in 2020. All of this, despite the devastating covid-19 pandemic.
Our High School team has been amazing in 2020, achieving all major goals and objectives set. They have been in schools since June, putting themselves at risk every day.
We have submitted 1348 university/NSFAS applications to-date.
This increased the application rate from 23% to over 88%
We continued to run Project Unity, our massive food operation, and are focusing on giving a lot of food parcels, masks and supplies to the Grade 12s.
Our students current pass-rate is an amazing 93%.
Our Masi Houses of Excellence remain open, providing free housing to Motherwell's poorest students.
We continue to provide support, including food parcels, mentoring and housing to our most impoverished students.
The academic year has been extended through February, so we are doing all we can to ensure everyone can still succeed.
If you missed it last time, please take a moment to hear about Xabisa's Dream here.
You are helping hundreds of learners and students, so it's easy to get caught up in the numbers. We wanted to share a story of an actual kid whose life is being changed because of you.
You are making an enormous difference in the lives of these learners, students, schools and communities.
