30 Aug Umnqophiso Celebrates 20 Years
Located in Lwandle, Umnqophiso Pre-Primary School started in 1996 and has gone from strength to strength ever since. We have been part of the school’s journey for the past four years and we are amazed at the positive impact they continue to have on their community and learners.
On 22 of September, Umnqophiso is having a 20th anniversary celebration and fundraiser. The event will include a dinner, an auction, lucky draws and performances by the children. Funds raised will go towards the school’s priorities on their wish list which include:
- Renovation of their sand pit area
- A photocopy machine
- Six sewing machines for the Phakamani Women’s Group
- Tertiary education for the teachers
- Insurance premium coverage
- Safety net funds to cover the school’s expenses when tuition fees and grants are received late
Visit Umnqophiso’s website for more information about the school.
Umnqophiso is looking for sponsors to donate items for the event (such as wine, accommodation vouchers, spa vouchers and gifts) for auctioning and the lucky draws.
Should you wish to support Umnqophiso with a sponsorship you could do so by donating items for the event, by making a monetary donation which will be added to the school’s fund raising effort, or by sponsoring a table of 10 people for R2 500. As a sponsor, you will receive recognition at the event and will be able to display branded pull up banners at the function venue.
Auction and lucky draw
Umnqophiso are in need of wine, accommodation vouchers, spa vouchers and gifts for auctioning and lucky draws. All donors will receive recognition at the event.
The school relies on donations
The grant from the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) and the tuition fees paid by parents do not cover the staff salaries and school’s overhead expenses. The school is reliant on donations from individuals and organisations – have a look at the charts below for the sources of revenue and revenue expenditure for the 2014 financial year. These figures were calculated using the annual financial statements, which were prepared by an independent accountant.
