We are living in unprecedented times and we trust that you and yours are keeping well and safe. It is a blessing to be alive! With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, billions of students across the globe are not able to attend school. In response, The Rainbow Academy is raising funds to create an online-teaching system, so that our students, who come from the most challenging socio-economic communities in South Africa, are able to continue with learning and are empowered to graduate in 2020! Students are currently not able to access the internet, access smartphones or afford data and funds raised will go towards getting these essentials to them.
We will also be creating an online, professional music, dance and drama channel for community engagement, providing an alternative to the systemic influence of drugs, alcohol and gangsterism- a rife phenomenon in our densely populated communities where social distancing and healthy avenues of recreation are near to impossible. Please join us in our mission to raise R250 000 to equip 40 enrolled students, 10 diploma students, 10 staff and the community at large, to keep learning, to keep teaching and to keep thriving in the time of Covid-19.
We are also engaging with communications, cell phone and tech companies to partner with us and are seeking assistance with marketing, fundraising, PR and promotion of this campaign. Please contact us if you are able to assist with any of these. We highly appreciate your investment and support! The Rainbow Academy is a registered NPO, NPC AND PBO. Donations are tax-deductible and will assist businesses in achievement of their BEE targets. We are happy to discuss any further mutual CSI, branding and or market-related initiative.
The Rainbow Academy is a registered, not for profit, School of Performing Arts and Business in the Western Cape, that provides skills and qualifications to disadvantaged youth, aged 18-25 within the Creative and Cultural Sector in the Western Cape. Our Learners will not be able to continue their education, classes, preparation for their October examinations or graduation in 2020 without your help!
