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 school, and less than 1% finish secondary school. You can help us to change that. Sponsoring a child can make a real difference in their lives and provide them with access to education and a better, brighter future. Your donation can help us to fund school fees, buy uniforms, purchase educational items and stationery but, above all, it secures the futures of our wonderful children. Visit our Clever Cubs School to meet the merry gang and get to know our wonderful children for yourself.

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 Naankuse throughout the year.
