BENEFITING: Imagine Scholar Inc

EVENT DATE: Mar 21, 2011

THE STORY:

This month we welcomed 10 inspiring new students to the Imagine Academy. This brings our total to 15 amazing kids fully devoting themselves to some equally amazing dreams. What we need now is to assure that these students are able to make it to the Imagine Academy twice a week for class.


Our biggest and most important program cost is transport. The kids take public minibuses to class, sometimes investing as much as 2 hours in transit time per class. A ride costs between $1 and $2 dollars each way and there are 9 to 11 classes per month. It works out to an average of $39 per student per month. This is not a big cost by Western standards but is a luxury that none of our students or their families can afford.

So we kindly ask you for assistance in sponsoring one student’s transport costs for the month of April.

As a bonus, the students love the idea of sending their sponsor a handwritten postcard from the rural Nkomazi region telling them what they learned that month in class :)

 

**NEW 2nd bonus- The first 15 people to donate will receive a authentic totally cool handmade African craft!!!!

To assign each of these totally awesome kids a specific sponsor, I thought I would list them all and see if maybe a certain name jumps out at you.  If not, I'll make the perfect match myself!

 

Prince (Danny's got the amazing Mr. Shabalala)
Siyanda (My personal favorite actor/person in the world Jonah Hill)
Pro (I think a great match with Heather)
Zodwa (Abby's pick)
Promise (Who better for the amazing Katherine!!!)
Mcondisi (The combo of Elise and J Fleury)
Themba (Snagged by Karen!)
Alucia (Perfect match for Kate)
Clara (Big thanks to Michele and Eric)
Tandzile (Katalina!)
Norman (William's guy)
Portia (Thank's Leslie!)
Jabulane (I've got "Mr. Education") 
Thenjiwe (Save the best for last, thank you Taylor :)
Victoriah (Allison's new best friend!)
