In-school support update
  • Before the kids were able to go back to school, the staff of Khula were very busy and active with weekly home visits. Basic education packs were given to the 100 in- school support children to encourage academic engagement throughout the lock down period. Primary caregiver equipping through education about COVID and activities to encourage interaction between them and the children have also been rolled out since level 4 of lock down.
  • On Friday’s, Khula is facilitating academic sessions in Cloetesville (weather dependent) – 11h00-13h00
In-school support needs
  • Basic stationery for the kids to make use of on Friday’s.

Calling Academy, is a low-fee independent high school for boys in Stellenbosch that provides holistic, high-quality education aimed at low income learners. They currently have three grades (8-10) and plan to add a grade each year until they are a full high school from grade 8-12.

Testimonials 

We value the hearts at Serve Stellenbosch and One Hope. Prayer support has been awesome. Every time we have put out a call for volunteers, the challenge was taken up by the congregation. Helping to fix up our hub, helping at Family Feasts and support to attend the World Without Ophans Conference in order to become part of a global movement. Making yourselves available as a pick up point for blueberries. We love One Hope.

Agnes Barnard, Kin Culture

A massive thank you from Calling Academy for the incredible work you have done. Your willingness to assist where needed, open hearts to continuously give - time or resources - and the humility in which you serve has touched us deeply. Being served by you has been a reminder of God’s unmerited and underserved grace towards us! Thank you for always looking for ways to lighten our burden and your non-stop-effortless serving. You have enriched our lives by the way you have served us. We appreciate you, we are extremely grateful for you and it has been a joy being served by you.
