Infinite Family's University Qualification Rate
Infinite Family's University Qualification Rate

What can 30 minutes a week and access to a computer do? Send teens to top notch universities and into jobs that change lives and communities at a rate 150% higher their peers! You are the reason our teens have been achieving these results for over a decade. 

Since 2009, 88% of teens who are mentored by Infinite Family through 12th grade achieved the top two levels of graduation qualification. This compares to 57% of all other South African students. Furthermore, the additional 12% of Infinite Family teens qualified for excellent vocational college programs. Thanks to you, 100% of Infinite Family 12th grade mentored teens will advance to tertiary studies and new opportunities for economic stability and independence!

Growing up in South Africa’s townships, our Net Buddies don’t expect to graduate high school because just at the time they need to be developing habits and skills -- including resilience, resourcefulness and responsibility -- that will make them productive and self-reliant, their daily reality includes:

  • Food insecurity, due to rampant unemployment and extreme poverty.
  • Toxic stress caused by constant, pervasive violence.
  • Insufficient contact with positive role models at home (where one or both parents may be missing), school or in their community.
  • Low expectations of prospects for success, either by themselves or those around them.  

So why should they expect to break the mold? Because, even if they don’t know it yet, they can! Thanks to your generosity making sure they have an Infinite Family Video Mentor to guide them, we know they will. 

We are deeply grateful to you, and to GlobalGiving and Airbnb, for your incredible extra support during these past two difficult years. Your commitment to our shared communities sustained our Net Buddies through the longest collective crisis in their young lives and made sure their studies stayed on track to continue delivering outstanding results!
