Child sponsorship

Every child deserves the best start in life and the opportunity to build a successful future. Through our Clever Cubs School we provide a quality education to San Bushman children.

Only 1 in 5 San Bushman children attend primary and less than 1% finish secondary school. You can help us to change that.

Our Clever Cubs School is completely reliant on volunteers and donations to keep going. If you sponsor a child at N/a’an ku sê, you will help us to give them the gift of a brighter future. Your donation will help us to fund school fees, buy uniforms, purchase educational items and above all, secure the future of our children.

Sponsor a child for just N$2,500 per year and in return you will receive:

  • A personalised certificate with a photo of your sponsored child
  • At least one update through the year on your sponsored child in addition to regular updates on the Clever Cubs School
  • News from N/a’an ku sê throughout the year

How to donate

Donate by PayPal, MyDonate or credit card

You can sponsor a child through PayPal or MyDonate. If you are a UK tax payer, MyDonate also collects GiftAid on our behalf which means the value of your donation will increase by 25% at no cost to you.

These options can be used for payments from any country.

Donate to us through BT MyDonate

If you have a PayPal account, simply log in to make your donation. If you do not have a PayPal account, click on “Donate with a card” and enter your credit card details.
