We need your ‘Project Sponsorship’ to assist in our work to achieve this.

Sail, Sing and Study towards a Secure Future

TV feature on Izivunguvungu
Cdr Mike Oldham, Foundation Manager, is interviewed on the SABC Espresso TV programme: on 6 October 2014. This features one of our top students, Howard Leoto, former Mirrors Champion and a college graduate.

Izivunguvungu offers a unique combination of Sailing and Music projects for the benefit of the youth from disadvantaged communities.The general development and educational progress is also prioritised in cooperation with the schools, guardians and community workers.

Commencing in Grade 4 or 5 the aims include ensuring skills development appropriate to at least the level of an accomplished amateur. Sailing, Boat Building or Music may provide job opportunities for a few of the students.

It is hoped others will have the chance for a secure future, either via False Bay College or our own Courses which can enable skills in wood/metal/fiberglass and paintspraying work, helping towards a job opportunity or self-employment.
