You Get to Give Campaign

Simply put…
…a getaway in the south peninsula
TO GIVE…a child chance in life by supporting a child’s education fund!

Nelson Mandela said: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”
Cape Point Route is a firm believer in education being the future of our communities and our country. We have chosen to support a local trust called Empowerment-Through-Education that is doing phenomenal work from foundation phase education.

Masakhane Educare, Masiphumelele

The E-T-E trust supports the top graduating children as and when possible from two superb crèches:  Masakhane Educare  in Masiphumelele and Green Curtains in Ocean View.  These children benefit from the E-T-E trusts’ vision to give these shining stars the opportunity to receive funding for their full primary & tertiary education. E-T-E currently supports 15 children at Sun Valley Primary School & 2 children at Laerskool Paul Greyling.
