Help Bright Start Educational Support Program grow.

With the NGO sector becoming increasingly competitive through the impact of Covid and many funding sources drying up, fundraising is a critical lifeline for Bright Start. 

Help us stay alive, do what we do and contribute towards our sustainability. 

Our Mission:

To give children from impoverished communities the chance of the quality education they deserve, so they can dream of a better future – not just for themselves, but for the whole of South Africa.

What we do:

Where Bright Start succeeds and other bursary or sponsorship programmes fail, is in its holistic approach to improving a child’s education. 

The Bright Start Educational Support Programme changes the lives of entire families and effects change in the wider community of Hout Bay and beyond. Our children come from families in the townships of Hangberg and Imizamo Yethu, who value education and the opportunity for change that a good education offers. Their commitment to, and investment into the program, is an integral part of the success of any Bright Start child.

We want to grow, offer more educational opportunities, but we cannot do this without a dedicated fundraiser. 

Your contribution would help us change the lives of our children, for a better future.

Target – R250,000 per annum.
