67 people

The Nokholo Project has adopted a pre-school in need and is challenging 67 people to help them purchase PPE for the school.

 

South Africa (14 July 2020)The Nokholo Project is a small NPO that started as a group of friends wanting to make a difference in people’s lives. After many attempts at trying to find a “cause”, they eventually narrowed it down to something they believe is incredibly valuable – children’s education. The friends wanted to see every child get the education they deserve, and not have to be limited by money.

“We are now run by two people, after hours. We don’t quite know what we’re doing, but what we do know is that we want to help wherever we can! In the past, we have paid school fees for families who were not able to afford it, and more recently, we have been able to give a few e-wallet vouchers to families in need of food during lockdown.”

This Mandela Month they are raising funds for the Noble Care Pre & Primary School in Olivenhoutbosch location (Midrand area), so that they can afford the right equipment (sanitisers, masks, etc.) to safely open. The hardships of lockdown have meant that they have not had any income throughout lockdown, and the struggles of trying to reopen safely have become a reality. With no income, they are struggling to pay rent, electricity, and now having to purchase PPE is a cost they never had to budget for before.

“We are challenging just 67 people to donate R100, which will be enough for Noble Care Pre & Primary school to open with enough protective gear, and if possible, provide lunches for their students (if we can get more, that would be even better).

We know there are hundreds of schools around the country struggling with this reality, and if we can just help one of these schools, we already know we will be making a difference in the lives of a lot of children, their families and their teachers.”

In the future, The Nokholo Project will continue to support Noble Care, as well as 5 other schools in the Olivenhoutbosch location, and they would love and appreciate any support they can get!

“We are passionate about South Africa and her people! We want to see these children, and many more, rise above and go on to do great things!”
