Education: The key to a future


We have worked in the area for long enough to recognise that the ONLY way out of this dire poverty is education. We acknowledge that the social circumstances of many learners are not conducive to studying, but we cannot give up on these children getting an education.

We are so excited to announce that we have launched a brilliant pilot project in January 2019 which aims at keeping children in school beyond grade 10, changing the way they feel about themselves, and improving maths marks too. Grade 8 pupils of Sekano Ntoane Secondary School will attend extra lessons every Saturday morning where tutors trained by Jade Education will revisit the core building blocks/foundations of maths. Famsa (Family Life Centre) and two independent social workers will concurrently run psycho-social programs aimed at improving learner self esteem, personal hygiene, and emotional well being.

We have a good track record of assisting schools in the area. In 2018 we these programs at various schools in the area:

  • Sanitary pad handouts for the entire year to almost 300 girls at Mapetla High School.
  • Washable sanitary pads to over 50 girls at Protea South Primary School.
  • Menstrual cups to over 50 girls at Sekano Ntoane Secondary School.
  • Over 500 pairs of school shoes and socks handed out to pupils at Khotso Primary School, Sedibathuto High Primary School, Mapetla High School and Megatong Primary School .
  • Select items of school uniform for desperate children
  • Saturday morning extra maths lessons at Mapetla High School


  • R48000 worth of sanitary pads, as well as menstrual cup handout, washable sanitary towels handout
  • R180000 for extra maths tutoring
  • R100000 for school shoes
  • We have positively impacted on the morale of all involved: learners, schools, parents/caregivers, teachers, and Soweto Department of Education.

It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute… that gives meaning to our lives.

Another rough day in the squatter camp. Trying to get the mother of this baby to give this little one to her aunt to look after. Aunt looks after her other 2 (older one pictured here). Our priority is 'best interests of the child', it has to be. Mom can barely care for herself and has had the most tragic life,she has known such violence. Story is very complicated, but the idea is to assist her and not to take the child away from her. Aunt lives a kilometer away. ...

I was contacted by a desperate mom in Zambia who urgently needs a chair for her daughter who was born with cerebral palsy. No treatment there, no help at all. How to get the chair to Zambia was the challenge.
Melody Eggar the most industrious and kind compassionate soul- you have arranged transport for a child's wheelchair to Zambia!!!! Steff Myers 2 pulled this one off!
Bless you and whomever has agreed to take this chair for little Prisca. She is 11 years old, born premature, her legs are badly affected. With no intervention those legs are bent at the hips and knees. She is heavy now and her mom can't carry her on her back anymore. Children like this little one have totally normal intelligence... Not going out is devastating.
Melody.... You have done such a huge something here. Now to access the chair. Need to cover costs and purchase it. Lenny Chita

Looking for any Ngos or businesses who operate in Snake Park Soweto. Very poor community living on mine dump. Looking to help with the many cerebral palsy children - apparently from acid mine drainage and uranium poisening.
If anyone knows who is responsible for abandoned mines pls share with us.
