School of Hope is a registered special-needs secondary school that provides a second chance at education for at-risk, vulnerable children and youth, that includes former street children, rehabilitated drug addicts, and children from abusive, neglectful homes. There is no requirement of an entrance exam, only the prerequisite that students demonstrate a willingness to learn. They offer computer application technology (CAT) as a compulsory subject to ensure that every learner leaves the school in possession of knowledge that they can use in the current information age and in their future career.

StreetSmart Cape Town provided School of Hope with a R150,000 disbursement towards the computer skills training instructor salary.

School of Hope


School of Hope recently partnered with On The Ball College, to empower more women to enter the IT business. The college has approached us to nominate a female learner to participate in the Woman in IT initiative. They provide programming and coding classes to young female adults from previously disadvantaged backgrounds to prepare them for a career in IT.


Sive Mxhonywa, a young female learner currently completing her Grade 10 at the School of Hope, has been nominated for this opportunity. She is a learner who is keen to partake in the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) currently experienced in South Africa. Sive said, “I would like to run my own Online firm one day, where I will be able to provide online health consultancy services to the economically and financially hallenged clients, who are geographically isolated in the rural areas of South Africa. I want to focus on using ICT to deliver top notch services to these atrisk clients due to their background and geographical location.They are also South Africans like us”.
