Student Support Fund Programme
Several students have received assistance from the collaboration between Afya Yoga Studio and RISE since June 2012. This support continues to strengthen over the years as the clients from Afya continue to contribute weekly towards the student’s education.
Donations received help to offset the student’s; school fees, exam fees, purchasing of textbooks and other school supplies, extra lessons, reading classes, lunch, transportation, and other school activities/events.
Students in the programme are always encouraged to maintain their grades and to improve in weak areas. We don’t accept students because they are doing well in school but based on financial need. Therefore, we set the pace for them to make improvements academically.
We also assign students to other organizations to volunteer once they are of the required age or pair them with other students within subject area that they continue to excel in.
