Many of the families we support cannot afford to purchase school uniforms for those children attending school. As a result, these children often attend school in old “hand me down” uniforms. This often sets them apart and makes them vulnerable to stigmatisation and ostracism. Consequently, at the start of each school year, Thandanani assesses the condition of the school uniforms of the children we support and purchases any items that require replacing. By purchasing any of the items below you will help foster acceptance at school and encourage school attendance and performance.
