SchoolNet SA has officially been listed as a beneficiary of the “My School My Village My Planet” programme. This means that every time one of our supporters shops at a partner store, and swipes his or her “My School” card, we get a small contribution – without our supporters spending a cent more.
The MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet fundraising programme is one of South Africa’s biggest community programmes. It raises more than R6 million rand a month for schools, charities and organisations, by partner stores making a contribution, on behalf of the supporter, towards the beneficiary they have selected.
SchoolNet SA already offers professional development and support to teachers and learners from under-resourced schools to help them make better use of digital tools to enhance education. Our plan is to put the money we raise through the My School programme towards supporting the professional development of additional teachers, who are not currently supported through one of our projects.
