Cannons raises money for Litoro Foundation
Spearheaded by the Interact Committee, Cannons Creek High School managed to raise over R1 500, as a donation towards the Litoro Foundation.
The donations will contribute to the Litoro students’ scholarships, tutorship, mentorship and stationery for 2022. Litoro Foundation representative Crissi van Eeden said, "We couldn’t be more grateful."
The Litoro Foundation was founded on the notion that every child deserves an equal opportunity to live out his or her dreams.
South Africa faces an unacceptably significant difference in the quality of education between its rural, public schools and leading private schools. High pupil to teacher ratios, high grade repetition rates and low Matric pass rates are prevalent among many of the poorest schools, with Grade 9 students from the poorest 60% of South African schools being 5 “years” of learning behind their wealthier peers. Such consequences are testament to the impact that an insufficient number of desks, limited learning materials, poor sanitation, and a lack of electricity and internet access inevitably has on the learning capabilities of aspiring pupils.
In order to combat these issues, the Litoro Foundation runs a number of multi-faceted projects with the help of its dedicated sponsors and team of volunteers.
