Onwards and Upwards at Urban Kids

From 7 children in 2011, we have grown to over 100 children in 6 classrooms! This year we launched our second Grade R class, enabling us to serve two classrooms each for our age groups (3-4 year olds, 4-5 year olds, Grade R students).

The heart of Urban Kids Educentre is to provide equality in education. We offer a high-quality preschool program at greatly reduced school fees. The generosity of our donors and sponsors, as well as the support of Urban Life Church enable us to breathe hope and opportunity into the lives of little ones from disadvantaged settings. Our fee structure allows us to reach out to many ‘emerging families’ who are just breaking the cycle of poverty in their families but still struggle to afford the average monthly fees in the Midrand-area.

Our program also offers the opportunity to UPLIFT underprivileged families who cannot afford even our reduced fees. Through sponsorships, we offer the gift of education to the little ones who need it most—those whose parents often had no choice in career, and from lack of opportunity and skills development have found themselves in very low-income work, or with no work.

One of our greatest needs in 2016 is these sponsorships, full or partial. Any amount from R200 up to full monthly sponsorship of R920 per month.

Please pray for us as we reach into the hearts of these little ones daily.

Individuals are welcome to invest into the life of a child through fee sponsorships (email office@botshabelo.co.za), or consider passing on our information to your company for sponsorship or other support (email office@botshabelo.co.za for proposals and other details).
