Study abroad in South Africa


South Africa

The Sinako After School Programme was established in February 2000 by Nwabisa Bonxo as a way to give back to the community in which she was raised. It is supported and operated from Nomlinganiselo Primary School.

Sinako is Xhosa for “we can.” Children who come to Sinako have access to a diverse variety of activities that give them the opportunity to develop their intellectual and social skills and become positive leaders in their communities.

Students benefit from the programme offerings, which includes a meal, free of charge. Sinako After School Care runs during the school week from Monday through Thursday. The programme begins at 15:00 and concludes at 17:00.

Sinako’s Mission:to educate and empower today’s youth so they will rise as the leaders of tomorrow who will lead us into a nation of greater efficiency, equality, and prosperity.
