Imibala

The Imibala Trust provides scholarships, uniforms and supplementary educational income to children from underprivileged communities in the Somerset West area of the Western Cape. Each child is provided the necessary supplies to attend school: a book bag, notebooks, school tracksuit, jersey, sock, shoes, and a raincoat. In addition, Imibala provides tuition if the sponsored student attends a fee-based school. By providing tuition, uniforms and school supplies, Imibala is eliminating the primary barriers to an education for these sponsored children. Imibala is providing access to an education for these sponsored children
