Short Story

Life for lives – A group of 4 inspired Grade 10 Selbornians taking on heavy weights to raise money to contribute to the building of a literacy centre at a local school in Mdantsane in partnership with EduSport Youth, a local non profit in East London. We are challenging ourselves to lift heavy weight at our local gym for 3 hours to raise the crucial funds needed to develop the literacy centre . We are fuelled by the fact that there are kids less fortunate who need our help and support.

About EduSport Youth organisation: EduSport organisation is a youth empowerment organisation that provides education and sport to those who need it. They empower communities to up lift the communities by creating community jobs for youth to work in schools, clubs, and afternoon academic sport programs, this ensures that everyone has access to quality education and sport. They employ unemployed youth from the community and train them as Literacy coaches or Sport coaches.

Through their partnership with Masinyusane, they put the youth to work in preschools, and primary schools either as sport or literacy coaches. Our Story: About 80% of grade 4 learners in South Africa are functionally illiterate and being in a class of 74 children does not make it easy to help to teach each child in the classroom and make sure that every child is equipped with the right skills. As fellow Selbornians hearing about this problem we have decided to help contribute towards this problem that is rising within our communities.

This campaign aims to raise funds for a school in Mdantsane which is in desperate need for a Literacy Centre. The funds raised will help to pay towards a literacy centre being built. This will help make classes smaller and teach children the basic skills that are needed.
