Bright Start is a non profit organisation that supports schooling of 37 children from historically impoverished communities in Hout Bay, Cape Town.
We are not only a bursary programme - we offer a holistic package for the children and parents - mentoring/counselling/aftercare/cultural enrichment programme/school readiness/tutoring and skills development workshops.
For the children who are starting a new school, we support them with a new uniform. We feel it is vital for a child's self-esteem and confidence. Often parents struggle with a number of educational costs therefore Bright Start covers costs for the first year.
The 6 new primary school learners, Abigail, Lisakhanya, Noluthando, Sabelo, Juliana and Nqobile will be starting Kronendal Primary School. Diego and Lubabalo will be starting Wynberg Boy's High School.
