One of KYP's core missions has always been to find ways to place our learners into good schools that will provide to them the quality education they should be entitled to. We were very excited at the beginning of the 2013 school year to find places for ten of our primary school students in the St. Peter's Claver School, where they are now receiving a better education than they had been getting before. 

 

We then thought it would be good to empower some of our high school students in Grades 10, 11 and 12 by helping them get access to programs that will assist them with those important subjects, such as mathematics and English, that our members struggle the most in yet are also among the most important for future success.  This April we applied twenty-four of these students to a learning program called Star Schools, which has provided world-class supplementary educational products and services for South African students for many years.
