Sponsor a child
Special needs children tend to generate more expenses than mainstream children, and we have parents that struggle to pay their school and/or hostel fees due to the higher living cost of these children. By sponsoring a child’s school or hostel fees it alleviates many of the pressures in the families’ lives.
Donations do not always have to be monetary. Discounts, supplies and furniture are helpful to the school. Up with Downs School, Hostel and Workshop all have wish lists. Please contact the school at firstname.lastname@example.org or call, 27 044 870 8770, if you are interested in helping with the needs.
One of the biggest gifts you can give to someone is to give of yourself and your time. Whether it is a weekly art class for an hour or assisting at the swimming pool, sharing your knowledge and/or time is be greatly appreciated.
Wall of Friendship
The wall of friendship has a prime position in the School’s foyer. The wooden bricks say “thank you” to businesses and people who have donated a single amount of R1000.00 to the School.
