Turning the tide
In a short time, Amandla has built the Resource Access Programme – or RAP – to bring practical support to Philippi’s students and to provide real-time guidance to help them take charge of their education journey:
– RAP brings nonprofits who provide help like tutoring, counselling, and positive after-school activities to schools to get students involved.
— RAP matches students with mentors as someone to look up to and be a real-time link to local support for issues ranging from domestic violence to substance abuse to not getting enough food to eat at home.
– RAP is turning the tide for Philippi’s students, and we want to get the programme into EVERY school in the community.
