Sponsor a Learner

Every child deserves to dream of a better future.
SOLE enables children from underprivileged backgrounds to get closer to realising their dreams through a better education. 

Funding a child's entire schooling journey means you will be recognised as the child's official sponsor.
Here is what to expect throughout your sponsorship.


We will provide you with a choice of learners and their biographies, so you can decide who to sponsor. If you wish, we will tell the child who their sponsor is.


You will receive termly reports on the child's personal and academic growth, as well as personal letters from the learner.



Celebrate the success of your sponsorship with beneficiary testimonials and your final report.

  • What am I paying for when I champion a project?
    100% of your money goes to the project costs on the ground. Private donors cover the salaries and operation costs in the SOLE office so your money can go directly to the following costs (breakdown can vary by project): * materials: booklets, beneficiary learning kits, stationery * project staff: coordinator and facilitators * project support: computers, internet, projector, space rental, marketing
  • What's included in my report?
    When your project year is complete, we assemble and send you a report with the following information: * photos of the actual project throughout the year * list and number of beneficiaries * beneficiary testimonials
  • How does SOLE determine the cost of championing a project?
    Each year, SOLE prepares a project budget based on the current operations as well as the upcoming year's strategic focus. These are examined closely by SOLE's finance team to ensure they are accurate and reasonable. Based on analysis of costs in previous and upcoming years, we've determined that R30 000 is most representative of a typical SOLE project. Not every project costs exactly R30 000. If the actual costs are less than your sponsorship, the extra money will go towards another SOLE project of your choice. If your sponsored project ends up at a higher cost, other SOLE donors will cover the remainder, but you will still be recognised as the project sponsor.
