Crew For A Cause: Wynberg Old Boys’ Scholarship Initiative
Wynberg Boys’ High School applauds and supports the groundswell efforts of our Old Wynbergians in actively ‘paying forward’ the benefits and opportunities experienced at their Alma Mater. Read the story of ‘Crew for a Cause’, and help us to support them in opening our opportunities to prospective, deserving, Wynberg Men:
At the end of 2017, a few Wynberg Old Boys from the years 2003 and 2004 got together and launched a Non-profit Company called “Crew for a Cause” with the intention of making a difference in someone’s life, and do our part to change the future for the better!
The company was set up with the idealism of “through education, we can create employment”, and with this creating as many jobs as possible, to provide self-respect, to feed families, and take a child off the street.
The criteria were clear from the start to enable a previously disadvantaged child the opportunity to go through a school like Wynberg, where we have all learned so much. And through these criteria, we found an incredible candidate in need, and one who we believe will give back to the school and country in the future.
So how does “Crew for a Cause” raise funds? Currently, we have 30 members each paying R200 monthly for a minimum of 3 years which is enough to fund one child, with the intention of raising tertiary education funds from an increased member base. With the core group of members being Wynberg Old boys, we have opened it up to friends, family, and businesses should they wish to get involved.
The aim of “Crew for a Cause” is to put as many children in need through schools like Wynberg Boys’ High School, but we can only do this with the help of others.
