‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.’
Helen Keller

The Masakhane Girls Secondary School is situated in Hazelmere, Verulam, and is home to 150 girls that reside on the school premises for the entirety of their high-school career. The holistic focus of the school is to provide not only the essential needs of the learners but also provide them with a well-balanced school education that uniquely embraces both secular and religious studies.

Many of the girls who attend the school come from impoverished circumstances and struggle to escape the cycle of poverty they were born into. Most learners come from single parent families, with little or no financial resources, many of the parents’ themselves have grown up in poverty and have little hope in their future. Some families are headed by grandparents many of whom are illiterate, aged and dependent on their monthly social grants to survive. Others are foster children, orphans and in some cases abandoned by their parents. To these students, Masakhane School is the ultimate vehicle of HOPE for their futures. In an amazing symbol of charity and despite overwhelming financial woes, the Masakhane Girls School persists and does not enforce the payment of school fees.

This in addition to the poor economic climate, securing ongoing funding to meet the ideals of this bold vision is always a challenge and the school is dependent on donations and philanthropy of well-meaning individuals and organisations such as SANZAF. The SANZAF Durban office which is resolutely driven by the organisations motto of ‘Changing Lives Through Development & Relief’ and the Willowton Oil Group through its many social responsibility and community upliftment initiatives have timeously stepped-in to provide tuition fees for 55 students varying from grade 10 to matric. The amount donated which totals R1.5 million will cover the cost of secular tuition, accommodation, three meals a day, transportation, stationery, text books, uniforms and separate Madressah costs for each of the 55 learners for this year.

Mr Husein Asmal, SANZAF General Manager Durban, indicated that, “this substantial investment is an investment into the lives of our futures leaders”. He added that this investment places a responsibility on everyone involved in the school to create an environment where these learners can thrive, progress and find their place in the community. “We want to be amazed by high quality results produced at this school, indeed a merit board filled with outstanding alumnae, going forward to do great things.”

We remain humble in the service to Almighty by serving mankind, as we urge you to help us to continue Giving Hope by supporting SANZAF Projects and Programmes such as these.

Louis Braille Poster Final

Venue: North Beach (near old snake park)
Time: 2 – 4 PM

SANZAF’S Braille Awareness Programme commemorates the visually Impaired people, which use Braille as a form of written communication in various languages.

January is recognized as the month of Braille. In order to create an awareness SANZAF is hosting a Braille reading competition, extra curricula activities in the form of scrabble, dominos, chess and many others which stimulate the senses of the visually impaired.

We invite the community to join us for the programme taking place at Durban’s North Beach (near the old Snake Park) on Saturday 26 January 2018 at 14:00. This will enable you to have a better understanding of the challenges that visually impaired people experience to access information which we take for granted.

SANZAF is proud to announce the launch of our Budget Beaters Book nationally!

The book, comprising of budget recipes which enable both individuals and families to cook a healthy and nutritious meal for a family of four for between R20 – R40, was developed in response to the dire food situation amongst lower income families.

Food security is one of the major concerns of SANZAF and according to Statistics SA’s General Household Survey 2017, 21.3% of South Africa’s households have limited access to food and 12.1% of individuals have at some point experienced hunger.

SANZAF Durban hosted an Open Day at their Chef School on Saturday the 9th of December 2018. Interested students attended to see how the Chef Course can make an impact in their lives.The course provides students who are passionate about having a career in the food and hospitality industry but do not have the resources to enrol at other hospitality institutions. It includes six months of theoretical training and six months of practical training where students are placed at selected hotels and restaurants in Durban.

The course is recognised by the South African Chefs Association and since the first intake in 2010, has led to the full time employment of 164 students.
