  • A lump sum to support the overall programme

  • Sponsorship of a child to attend the Saturday School annually

  • Sponsorship of an uBambiswano fundraising event

  • Contribution of in-kind products, services and networking opportunities

  • Opportunities for post matric skills, training and internships.

Funding is also required in the form of bursaries and scholarships for our students to obtain entry

into top-quality high schools.
