Uplifting '67 Kids to School' charity project will live on at SACS

Young boys from the SA College School (SACS) want to ensure that their newly established charity project continues to touch many lives, becoming a legacy of the school.

In 2015, four matric learners from SACS created a project called "67 Kids to School" to help less fortunate learners prepare for the 2016 academic year, and raised an impressive R44 000 in three months.

The aim was to sponsor 67 pupils in poorer communities with basic necessities such as uniform and stationery.

Now a team of grade 11 learners will continue the project for the next year and carried it forward forward into future grades.

After raising the R44 000 for pupils at Masiphumelele High School, and collaborating with NGO Living Hope, the team was inspired to further help the community.

They are now renovating and restoring a building for the Living Hope centre to provide aftercare services to families in the township.
