Sports Development
Back to school


Starting a new schooling year can be an exciting but stressful time for many learners, parents and educators. One of the biggest challenges faced by families is ensuring that their children have the necessary supplies to excel in their studies. This is where partnerships between organisations like the Hollywood Foundation and the South African Taxi Association (SANTACO) can make a real difference.

For years, the Hollywood Foundation and SANTACO have been working together on the Back to School campaign, providing much-needed school supplies to children in need. Education and Training is one of the key pillars of the Hollywood Foundation, and the partnership with SANTACO has allowed them to reach a wider audience and make a greater impact.

As partners, SANTACO and the Hollywood Foundation share a common goal of advancing education. Together, they have collaborated on a number of successful programmes, including the distribution of school uniforms and sports equipment, and assisting communities that were affected by the riots and looting, through the #HopeisPower campaign. However, their biggest achievement thus far has been the refurbishment of ablution facilities and the contribution of desks to Mayville Primary School and Mayville Secondary School in the Cato Crest Association in the Durban Central Region.

Through their combined efforts, SANTACO and the Hollywood Foundation have shown that partnerships between organisations can make a real difference in the lives of children and their communities.
