Sponsor a Child

Thuthukani Special School is a school for intellectually disabled learners. The learners often have more than one disability. Our school is meeting the educational needs of as many learners as we can accommodate and we have a steadily growing waiting list. We provide a specially adapted education to these learners and we supply the adapted learning and teaching support material. Each child is provided with two meals per school day.

As most of our learners come from socially disadvantaged backgrounds - we have kept our school fees at R120 per month, and at our last AGM many parents indicated that this amount is appreciated, but still hard to afford. On average, only about 14% of our parents can afford to pay our school fees.

Thuthukani does receive a subsidy from the SA Government, but this amount is not sufficient to run the school effectively and safely for the intellectually disabled learners and we rely on fundraising to effectively operate the school.

As we only receive school fees from only 14% of our learners, we are appealing to the community to sponsor school fees by making a monthly donation to the school, equivalent to school fees for a learner. Any donations can be made to our bank account:
  • Account Name: Thuthukani Special School
  • Account Number: 404 433 5087
  • Account Type: Cheque
  • Bank: ABSA
  • Branch Number: 334 130
  • Reference: (Your surname) Sponsor a Child

Please note that we are registered as a Public Benefit Organisation, and your donation will be acknowledged with a Section 18A certificate.

We thank you for your support.
Yours sincerely
