Chris Hani Independent School

The Trust has taken this independent school in the Joe Slovo Informal settlement in Langa under it’s wing and a number of initiatives are under way to help ease the burden on these enterprising educators.

The latest and most exciting development is the involvement of The Angel network, established by popular talk-show host, Oprah Winfrey.

In December 2004 Trustee, Enver Malley of Grass Routes Tours took Oprah out to visit the school and she agreed to pay the salaries of all the teachers for the next 3 years. She has also donated a mini library to the school.

Dr Tim Kuypers, Director of the Network Economics Consulting Group in Sydney Australia, has also donated a number of computers and software, which are currently being shipped to us. They will also be financing computer training for the teachers, to enable them to effectively utilize the computers.
