We need your help to extend a helping hand.

The Thuso Fund for Schools and Charities was created by MySchool to support under-resourced schools and charities across South Africa. It supports special projects that address school and learner needs, such as stationery donations, training for teachers, improved security, library books, financial assistance with projects and equipment, etc. The Fund is also used to support charities that care for people, animals and the environment and will make a meaningful difference in these fields.

Projects to date have included the donation of hearing aids, visual aids for the blind, animal welfare improvements, donations towards conservation of endangered animals, makeovers for children’s orphanages, lap desks for schools without desks, food gardens, and donations towards charities that work with street children.
