Community Outreach Fund


The focus of this Fund is on supporting and reaching out to the local community and the wider College community. Working though the Khanyisa programmes, both primary and high school, specific needs are identified and met.

Maritzburg College launched the Khanyisa Outreach Programme in 2009. This was done to address concerns around poor learner performance in Maths, Physical Science, and English in Pietermaritzburg-based schools.

For over a decade, Maritzburg College has arranged learning materials, transport, lunch, and weekend classes for Grade 11 and 12 students from around Pietermaritzburg. Sponsored by Hulamin, we contribute towards promising futures through Maths, English and Science education.

In 2022, Maritzburg College launched the Khanyisa Primary Schools Programme, which sees grade 6 and 7 learners attend classes and sports programmes at College once a week. This is sponsored by the Joan Anderson Educational Trust. 

The importance of The Fund

Khanyisa offers academic, social, and communal benefits to enrich the lives of learners and educators. Our focus is on under-resourced schools which have been identified by the Department of Education as needing assistance. Khanyisa aims to address the learner and educator needs arising from a lack of resources, high learner-to-educator-ratios, and other challenges.

Since its inception, Khanyisa has grown from a local programme to one with international aspirations – one that will embrace digital resources as a tool for learning. By donating towards this worthy cause, you are helping to improve the lives of all South Africans as you invest in our Youth.

What you will receive for your contributions

Maritzburg College supports the spirit of the B-BBEE code, as a way for organisations to contribute to society, and the Foundation therefore facilitates the issuing on B-BBEE certificates to donors as part of the CSI/SED portion of their BEE scorecard. The Foundation is independently audited by Moore Midlands Inc. on an annual basis. B-BBEE certification is provided by RockSolid Consulting, a division of Colenbranders Inc. and approved IRBA Registered B-BBEE Auditors.
