Mentor A Child

With the many challenges our AEC learners face, they take great comfort in knowing a capable and caring adult will be there for them. Mentors from all walks of life offer career guidance, pep talks and “an ear” for our learners. We arrange a few functions a year where mentors and children get together to form a bond.

Become A Crowdfunding Champion

Each year, it costs us about R30 000 to send a child to school. This includes fees, transport, one meal a day, uniforms and field trips. We are looking for crowdfunding champions to raise this amount for us. It’s a super efficient, fun and easy way of raising money for the AEC.

Here’s a few ways being a crowdfunding champion works:

  • Say for instance you are a master knitter. You could register on our page, and challenge yourself to make 50 blankets in 8 months. Ask your friends to back you by donating money. Not only would the funds go to us, but you may decide to give blankets to the homeless.
  • You love cycling and have signed-up for the 94.7 cycle race. Do it in our name and ask your friends to donate to this cause.
  • Your birthday is coming up and instead of people buying you gifts, they could donate directly through you to AEC.

Register as one of our champions on BackaBuddy and find us here.
