RTC Scholars Program

Raise the Children recruits highly-motivated orphans to be a part of our scholars program. Each scholar must complete an extensive interview process before being accepted. Currently, we partner with four private schools: Edendale Independent School in Pretoria, Tiger Kloof in Taung, Northwest, Cornerstone College in Silverton, and Jabulane Christian Academy in Hamaanskraal. At Edendale we have 20 high school scholars and 1 middle school scholar, all of whom board at school. At Tiger Kloof we have 6 learners, at Cornerstone we have 8, and at Jabulane we have 8. Each of our scholars has a different story, different struggles and different strengths. Many of them hope to become doctors, engineers, and teachers and we do everything we can to make those aspirations possible.  The main components of our scholars program include sending each of our scholars to a private school, covering their housing and living cost (whether they board at school or live with a host family), providing mentorship and academic enrichment outside of the classroom, and providing life skills training. If you know of an orphan in South Africa who would benefit from the RTC Scholars Program please contact our Program Manager, Marieke at marieke@raisethechildren.org.
