Sifiso is a dedicated teacher at Hector Pieterson High School in Kraaifontein who is known for always going the extra mile for his students.
Tragically, some of Sifiso’s students struggle with even the most basic goods. Many students cannot afford school clothes or stationery. Because of this, some students do not want to attend class and finish their schooling.
Sifiso knows that if his students could have these essentials, it would improve their circumstances.
He has started to raise funds in order to support his students. On weekends, Sifiso works at a market to create an extra source of income. Over the past few years, Sifiso has asked his friends and family to donate toward his students, instead of receiving birthday presents.
He works after-hours to support his students, to make sure they’re coping. Even over the holidays, Sifiso’s students will come over to his house to discuss their issues.
We wanted to help Sifiso as he supports his students in any way he can, so we called some of our friends at PEP who are going to give him a R5 000 voucher towards school uniforms for 15 students.
Additionally, Forms Media Independent Africa (Pty) Ltd. are going to supply stationery for those 15 students to the value of R3 900!
