Uniform Project

Uniforms are a basic requirement of all South African schools, but for many of our local families living on minimal incomes or social grants, the cost is substantial. It takes a fourth of an unskilled worker’s monthly salary to purchase a full school uniform for one child. As a result, many children in our area go to school in torn, worn out, or outgrown clothing.

The Uniform project (UP) is working towards providing uniforms for students in our area. UP works closely with school principals to identify students with the greatest need and provides them with quality uniforms. To contribute click “Donate Now” and remember to put ‘UP’ in your reference.
