Providing astronomy inspiration & Hygienic Supplies to underserved families

Target location: South Africa

Target audience: The families of the 110 female students enrolled at the Molo Mhlaba primary school in Khayelitsha, and the female students themselves.

Informal and partially informal settlements in South Africa are incredibly vulnerable to the spread of the Covid-19 virus. One of the communities in Cape Town is Khayelitsha where children are also facing a complete stall in their education due to school closures, as they are unable to access online educational resources from home. This project will provide the families of 110 students with hygienic supplies, while also including educational, astronomy-based material for the children and their families to enjoy while at home in order to keep the students inspired and engaged in learning during the lockdown.
