iXoxo Trust is a targeted intervention to help disadvantaged children attend quality schools in our area. We are a quality driven Non-Profit Organisation, that keeps our number of beneficiaries small raising funds for them to receive a good education, and mentoring thus impacting their families, communities and future generations.

Nomy's family live at Impendle, which means 'exposed' in Zulu. It is a remote rural town below the Drakensberg mountain.

Nomy's mother earns $215/month and is a widow supporting four children. 

We have supported Nomy through her Primary School years (Grade 1 - 7) and this year she entered High School Grade 8 - 12.

We enrolled her as a boarder as she has no computer, printer, even TV at her home. Her family also could not afford the cost of daily transport to and from school. Sometimes times are tough and there is no money for electricity. By boarding, she has a library, sports amenities, prep times, computers, in fact, everything at her fingertips in order for her to thrive.

Nomy is aware of how fortunate she is and at Primary School even though the medium of instruction was not Zulu (her mother tongue) but English always gave of her best, passing every year with above grade average percentages, receiving the Art Prize in Grade 5 and being Netball Captain of the schools 1st team in Grade 7. An all-rounder. 

We are asking for funds to keep her at the excellent school that admitted her at the beginning of the year.

We need $1860 to pay for her boarding from July - December & $1614 for school fees.  We require funds urgently, we so don't want to have to tell her we need to pull her out. Please, may I also ask everyone to please share our campaign in order to grow our audience. 

We started this positive trajectory and we hope to continue it.
