“A FAIR CHANCE”- FUNDRAISING FOR THE BRAVE WARRIORS

On the 18th of September 2016 Africa Unite (Singamakhalipha) hosted a fundraising event to raise funds and promote their Foundation Phase Tutorial classes. The event was held at Center For The Book in Queen Victoria Cape Town. Close to 50 guests came out to support the “brave warriors”.

The children of Singamakhalipha confidently performed drama, dance and singing for the guests and there were a few performances from upcoming artists such as African Indigenous Soul from Phillip and Marie Laure an intern from France.

The Foundation Phase Tutorials began as a result of our home work support programme in the afternoons with the children where we noted that children had not mastered the 3 basic R’s of education that is the ability to Read, write and aRithmetics. We then embarked on Foundation Phase Tutorial classes with thirty children who were identified from our programme. Most of the children selected are from informal settlements in Gugulethu and Nyanga who are in need of assistance through the basics of grade 1, 2 and 3 which is the foundation of all academic education. These classes have run

for 8 months now at this event much was shared on the progress of the children and the project.

The event boosted the children’s confidence in their performance skills and their ability to speak in public as the guests sang along and applauded the children’s performances. Some funds were raised from this event and will go a long way in supporting the continuation of the classes.

We would to thank the entire guest for attending the event as their contribution is supporting our effort in giving the children a fair chance in education. We would also like to say a BIG thank you to Food Lovers Market located at St Georges Mall for providing refreshments for the day and making our day more colorful.
