News and Announcements from Rays of Hope

The Rays of Hope Ignition programme selects matriculants from Alexandra schools and provides them with a matrix of support to enable each one to study at a tertiary level or complete technical training, with the goal of finding sustainable employment. One of the ways we support them is through mentoring.

We are in need or mentors for our university students largely from Alex. These are students coming from previously disadvantaged background and needing mentors to help guide them through university.

For the past few years we have been focusing on a plea for only mentors. This year we are extending our request and looking for people who could partner with us financially (individual funders or companies) or if you could give us some leads to potential companies.
