It is crucial that chelo has a sustainable fundraising strategy because of course, with each child for whom we are able to provide the opportunity of a bursary, our costs increase. 

There are various ways in which you can support chelo to raise the required funds to ensure that chelo can continue to enrich the lives of our bursary students. 

Online Donations

Please consider donating to chelo either as a one-off amount or on a monthly basis. Follow this link for our online donation platform. 

chelo and our bursary students are incredibly grateful for the generosity of the parents of Hout Bay International School, our sponsors, commerical partners, the local Hout Bay and wider Cape Town and International communities. 


Save the date for our exciting social events planned for 2018. These events are much anticipated and open to anyone, not just the school community. More details to follow soon.
