Youth Day celebrations and excitement!
Akhona Gxathwana from St Margaret's School has been provisionally accepted to 3 universities pending his exam results and interview with Rural Education Access Programme (REAP).
With .1% of the population of the Eastern Cape with tertiary education this is absolutely wonderful news for Akhona and his family.
In 2016 ASAP began a partnership with REAP which started with identifying rural Grade 11 children from the villages in which we work, with the potential and results to access tertiary education. REAP provides bursaries and support to youth from rural areas to access tertiary education. Through a structured process, 6 of the children we identified are applying to universities of their choice. If they are successful the potential for the trajectory of their lives to change is huge.
Ayanda, Learner Support Agent at St Margaret's said: "I am here for these kids and I will do everything in my power to help them."
Well done Akhona! Well done too to Pakade Amanda, Gxathwana Akhona, Mpopo Keitumetsi, Mthiyana Louw, Brown Vusumzi and Mathangana Lungelo - and good luck! Thank you too the the dedicated ASAP team who have worked hard to support and encourage these children.

Local Matat resident Tracy Rawlins Spriggs donated a large number of art supplies which the OVC of Zitapile village enjoyed using to make and decorate utensil holders and vases for their homes. Children don't take art as a subject at school and ASAP knows that play and expression of creativity is the best way for children to learn. In addition, children learn fine motor skills and we're able to see which children need additional support compared to their peers.
Thank you for your donation Tracy Rawlins Spriggs! As always, we appreciate your support!

Project90x2030 donated a lightbox to ASAP for Nonkqubela CBO. The building from which they work is dark and without electricity. The solar panel charges a battery which in turn illuminates 2 light bulbs and charges a cell phone. This enables children and caregivers to do their work when it's dark. Training was given on how to use and maintain the lighbox and ASAP's facilitators visit the CBO weekly so are on hand to trouble shoot problems as they arise.
The idea is that the youth will in time be able to build these solar panels, as is done in Cape Town, as part of an income generation initiative in the region.
It is the beginning of a pilot project we're very excited about in Zitapile village, the most remote community we support in their efforts to improve the lives of their children.
