Girl's school gets R80,000 funding

16 Dec 2012 10:07
The Communications Firm (TCF) has donated R80,000 towards tutoring activities, themed workshops, career exposure forums, excursions and social events at the Letsibogo Girls High School in Meadowlands, Soweto.
The contribution was made through the Quarphix Foundation, which deals directly with both the school and the girls who are the foundation's beneficiaries. The school is known for having a better Matric pass rate than most of the schools in the area.

The foundation is currently running a programme called the Radical Dreamers programme that targets youth facing challenges ranging from financial, psychological to social issues that threaten their respective futures.

Palesa Mjali, of Quarphix said, "The foundation is appreciative of the donation, as it will go a long way to aid in the continued development of our young dreamers enrolled in the Radical Dreamers programme."

"Opportunity is the most expensive resource in South Africa and, as a medium-size organisation, we felt that we needed to play our part in making the much needed difference to education of children from disadvantaged backgrounds in particular," said Bonnke Shipalana, CEO of TCF, speaking at the handover event."
