INKUTHAZO means encouragement and motivation in Xhosa, and our sponsors do their part by helping to bring the above reality to schools in South Africa. Over the past five years, Inkuthazo (formerly Sponsor A Child) has outfitted schools with books, educational supplies, Amazon HD Kindle Fire tablets, electricity, tiled floors, insulated ceilings, a nutritious breakfast and lunch program, teacher training, field trips, and a live security system. UP has also visited the homes of sponsored children, and donors have purchased enough beds, duvets, cooking supplies, miniature stoves, wardrobes, student desks, dining room tables, clothing, and school uniforms to foster the best possible learning environment.

As a UP sponsor, you will receive a photo of your child and learn about his/her family members and living situation, favorite activities, and dreams for the future. You will also receive an update on your child's progress every six months, receive items made especially for you, and learn precisely how your funds have been disbursed. Your sponsorship, which amounts to $1 per day, will be used to fulfill our mission and to provide each child with educational materials, trained teachers, and basic amenities.

We would be honored to welcome you to our group of amazing sponsors. To submit your sponsorship details, click here, or to gather more information, please contact us.
