Amasango Career School (Teachers Group) Home
Friends of Amasango is the UK charity that supports the work of the Amasango Career School in Makhanda (Grahamstown), South Africa. This special needs school enables severely marginalised children and young people to obtain a primary education and build self-esteem. Grants from the Friends mainly provide:
- two meals a day and food parcels at weekends – without these, many 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 school
- teaching equipment, tools and vocational equipment that are not provided by the education authority.
Children often have no financial support or family backing, so the food, clothing and transport supplied make attendance at school possible.
