Friends in Africa
Amasango Career School, Grahamstown, South
This special needs school
enables children from the very poorest levels of society to obtain a primary education and build self-esteem.
All Saints support the school through giving grants to the Friends of
Amasango , fundraising and sending
The Friends of Amasango
Friends’ grants mainly
- two meals a day and food parcels at weekends – without these, children at
the school would not eat
- school uniforms, shoes, coats and other clothing once a year – without
these, the children could not attend school
- uniforms, schoolbooks and rent (if needed) for ex-pupils who go on to high
- teaching equipment, tools and vocational equipment that are not provided by
the education authority.
Children often have no
financial support or much family backing, so the food, clothing and transport
supplied make attendance at school possible.
In February 2017 six
parishioners visited the school for two weeks to support staff and learners,
act a informal classroom assistants and help with after school clubs. Since then two further visits have been made.
