How You Can Help
Seeds of Light programs are made possible by the generous support of many dedicated and caring individuals. Donations of any amount, large or small, made to Seeds of Light go into the Seeds of Light general fund, where they are then used in a variety of ways to support the projects with which we are involved.
We gratefully accept cash (in person), check or credit card donations. In South Africa, you can also make an internet transfer. Please contact us for banking details if you choose this option. As a contributing supporter of Seeds of Light, you will receive our quarterly e-newsletter to keep you updated and informed about our various projects and events.

Monthly Sponsorship Program
Your sponsorship of only $35.00 US per month helps to cover expenses such as supplemental food, school fees, school uniforms, medical treatments, clothing and transportation. A renewable 2 year commitment is requested. Click here to download a sign-up form to become a sponsor by making a monthly recurring donation.
The Seeds of Light Sponsorship Program connects sponsors to our projects in South Africa, which provide support to those affected by HIV/AIDS. Many are either orphans or vulnerable children who have at least one parent with AIDS. We identify existing, sustainable, under-assisted projects and give practical support, moving them into viable operations that uplift the community.
The Seeds of Light scholarship program has sponsored a number of individuals who show real promise by providing grants to cover the cost of fees for education. This includes secondary education and university and technical training in a variety of skills. These grants have resulted in profound change in the lives of people who receive them.
Your donation helps to cover living and school material expenses such as food, warm clothing, transport, books, and computer and school supplies to support a qualified young person while attending secondary school, university or technical college. In many cases, tuition is covered by a local government scholarship, but in order to receive it, the student must attend full-time. Therefore, if we can supply living expenses to supplement the tuition, we create a win-win.
This is a life changing opportunity not only for the student but also for the community, with a potential ripple effect that goes out far beyond the success of just one student.

Or you may make a one-time donation by clicking on the online donation link above and selecting the scholarship program.
