Oppie Koppie aims to provide state-of-the-art education to children from the vulnerable community of Prince Alfred’s Hamlet, located outside of Ceres in the Witzenberg Municipality.

Each child has a dream that should never be dimmed by the harsh realities of their current living situations. We appeal to you to team up with us and sponsor a child, sponsor a dream so that together we can keep their dreams alive!

Your sponsorship contribution goes towards providing the following for the children:

What is Child Sponsorship?

Child sponsorship is a unique program by Vuya Foundation in partnership with Henkel South Africa that connects a child in need with one compassionate person like you!

Becoming a sponsor means giving children from the Oppie Koppie Creche the chance to grow up healthy, educated, and safe; forever changing their lives and future.

How do I sponsor?

You can donate on a once-off basis or a monthly, quarterly, bi-annual, or annual sponsorship payment. If you are looking to support us, but cannot make a monetary contribution, please email us and we can discuss how you would like to support.

When you have signed up to sponsor a child, you will receive a welcome letter and if making non-monetary contribution, details of how to send the donation will be shared with you.

As a sponsor, you will also receive a bi-annual update on your sponsored child, a special art and an updated photo.

Sponsor a child


Sponsored children do not receive direct cash benefits. The donation is collectively used to achieve maximum effectiveness. Your contribution is combined with contributions from other caring sponsors to make life better for a sponsored child.

We encourage you to support the same child throughout their education for as long as you are able. This allows children to continue their education uninterrupted and facilitates a relationship between the sponsor and the sponsored children. We, therefore, urge you to commit to at least a 6-month sponsorship. Should you at any time decide to discontinue your sponsorship, please provide a month’s notice. Children are usually at Oppie Koppie for two to three years.

We try to match each child with one sponsor, however, based on the need of each child, multiple sponsors may be required.

Sending correspondence to your chosen child is completely optional. If you opt to send an email to the child, we make that process easy and efficient. Your encouragement to the child is highly valued
