Keep local learners on the right track with ‘back to school’ donations

Back to school _ TCD Trust

One of the key aims of Baphumelele is to ensure that every child and teenager in their care is able to attend school like any other child, with a proper uniform, shoes, a school bag, lunch box and the required stationery.

Education is these children’s future and fitting in at school so that they can focus all their attention on learning is vital for their confidence and ability to learn well.

Baphumelele has created a short list of useful donations that would benefit the over 150 children they care for.

Let’s help get 2014 started right for these learners:

  • School uniform – white shirt; trousers/skirt or school tracksuit, jumper; rain jacket; grey or white socks
  • School shoes – because the children walk to school and sometimes quite a long distance, they are in need of good quality shoes that will last the whole year
  • School bag
  • Lunch box
  • Drinking bottle
  • School stationery –  including 4 reams of typing paper; maths set, dictionary and calculator (high school); croxley black hardcover books; flip files; colouring pencils; rulers, erasers and pencil sharpeners

The children and teenagers attend a variety of schools which all have specific uniform requirements and stationery lists depending on age and gender, so please do get in touch with them if you would like to donate specific items:
