As you know, education is a foundation for a nation’s prosperity. However, a solid educational foundation for learners has to be ensured at primary and secondary school levels. It is unfortunately at these levels that learners at schools that are located in rural areas get disadvantaged. Major efforts are therefore needed to assist learners at rural schools to obtain a solid education foundation as a gateway to successful futures. This also pertains at Colosa High School, a rural education institution in Dutywa, Eastern Cape. Mthombo Wethemba Initiative has commenced with efforts to contribute to alleviating this challenge.
Mthombo Wethemba Initiative, a Non-Profit Company, was founded in 2017 by members of the Colosa High School Alumni, the 1970s classes. Mthombo is mobilising all alumni to come together to rebuild and sustain the character and stature of Colosa High School. Mthombo was borne out of a socially responsible drive to give back and make a difference in the lives of the learners, our future leaders.
The primary objectives of Mthombo Wethemba Initiative are:
- Educator leadership development and support
- Learner motivation and support
- Infrastructure rehabilitation and maintenance
It is our vision to reverse the state of decline in education in rural schools, especially in Dutywa by creating a Centre of Education Excellence in the region. Mthombo has thus embarked on fundraising initiatives to anchor this noble cause.
You can help by extending your hand to support this cause. Mthombo is a legally registered non-profit company and has already commenced with the educator leadership and learner support programmes.
Your commitment to helping strengthen Mthombo’s resolve to improve conditions at rural schools will go a long way to addressing educational problems for poor communities.
Kindly give serious thought to contributing to Mthombo Wethemba Initiative. All funds contributed to Mthombo will be used to support education-related initiative in rural communities.
