Urban Kids

Quality education should be accessible for everyone. Wouldn’t you agree? 


“Stats show that a child who gets a good Grade R foundation is 3 times more likely to matriculate!”

Yes, you did read that correctly, three times more likely to matriculate. 

We, as Botshabelo, want to be part of the solution. We want to add value to our city, one education at a time. Urban Kids Educentre is one of the ways we do exactly that. Urban Kids is part of the solution to effectively empower families to break the cycle of poverty, giving them and their children the options for success in school and career choices.

How does it work? 

Well for starters, we don’t do it alone. We have incredible School Fee Sponsors, individuals and companies who partner with us to give these children a greater chance to matriculate, but even more than that, it gives them a greater chance at LIFE. Urban Kids provide quality education – aiming to keep our kids in school. And our community helps rally together with sponsorships, equipment donations and fun days! 

How do I get involved?


There are a few ways that you can partner with us:


  • Check out our wishlist and help us out by donating our most needed items.
  • Become a school fee sponsor and invest in the future leaders of our nation
  • Load us on your MySchool card as one of your three chosen NPO’s and give back every time you shop. 

We are so grateful to each and every person, company and sponsor that has made a decision to partner with us to change the odds.
