When making a donation, please indicate a reference if you'd like your donation to be used toward a particular activity or programme. 

Donated funds are used to cover costs incurred to print lesson materials, purchase school supplies, provide health checks and pay for resulting medical expenses such as eyeglasses. Edu Fun also uses donated funds to pay for various social activities, such as our annual trip to the Joburg Zoo for grade 3 learners, an annual Holiday Party for both grades 2 and 3 and an annual Holiday Reading, Art and Sport programme for select students from grades 2 and 3. We also have a further education programme (FEP) which assists varsity students from Diepsloot with living and educational expenses while pursuing further education.

It costs ZAR500 per child, per school year to provide all Edu Fun learning materials, printing, the trip to the zoo, Easter gift, Christmas party and holiday gift. To select and sponsor a child or multiple children in grade 3 for the year, click here.  We will update sponsors on the child's progress throughout the year. 

Edu Fun is an official South African NPO (registered number 069-772-NPO). We are also registered as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO 930036948) and can issue tax deductible receipts.

Corporate sponsors can score maximum B-BBEE points when making a charitable donation to Edu Fun. Edu Fun is the ideal partner for companies wishing to invest to improve literacy and education for students in one of the neediest communities in South Africa.

Spread a Little Love on Monday Mornings!

On Monday mornings during term time, you can also help ‘spread a little love’ by donating food for the children of Diepsloot Combined School by making peanut butter sandwiches or donating bags of fresh fruit. These donations provide a filling start to the week, on average, for more than 300 of the 1,400 students attending the school. But we could always do with more, which is why you can also help by spreading the word and donating sandwiches, fruit or supplies!

The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. supply over 200 sandwiches and more than 100 apples on any given week and we welcome others to supplement their efforts!  If you’d like to add your name to the list of sandwich volunteers, please contact Jenny on 082 322 0608 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
