iThemba Scholars Programme

From 2016 the iThemba Scholars programme was initiated where scholarships are offered to attend Waterfall Schools to learners from two of our ECD partners who demonstrate the potential to thrive academically. Located on our iThemba Campus, Waterfall Schools, encompassing Waterfall Pre-Primary, Waterfall Preparatory and Waterfall College, offer quality education from 12 months to Grade 12. These co-educational independent centres of excellence provide quality holistic education with a caring, innovative, personalised approach interwoven with Christian values, community outreach initiatives and affordability. Looking ahead the schools have an ambitious masterplan which is currently being implemented. The schools are members of ISASA (Independent Schools Association of South Africa).

In 2019, ten children from Grades 000 to 5 are supported within the programme. In addition, four iThemba foster children are completing their schooling at Waterfall Schools. Through the support of forward-thinking donors, the Fund aims to support an additional two children each year. Our objective is to continue to fundraise for the iThemba Scholars Scholarship Fund to ensure sustainability for this dynamic programme. Ultimately, the aim is to have 30 scholars in the programme – two per grade. These life-changing scholarships cover 100% tuition, stationery and books.
