Ububele is a Saturday School for girls from a less fortunate school, run by St Teresa's School. All of the St Teresa's community are involved in meeting the needs of South Africa by paying forward the wonderful educational knowledge and opportunities that we all enjoy at St Teresa’s. Ububele means Mercy and Kindness in Zulu and is a fitting tribute to our founders, the Sisters of Mercy.
As Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy said...
“ No work of charity can be more productive to society… than the careful instruction of women.”.
Based on the principle of “pay it forward”, our learners, parents and staff pass on their knowledge in English, Maths, and Computers to Grade 2 and Grade 6 girls from a less fortunate school. Lifeskills such as swimming, netball, beading, knitting, self defence, public speaking, yoga, crafts etc are also taught and enjoyed by the girls. By acting as teaching assistants, sports coaches and life skills facilitators at Ububele, St Teresa’s learners, parents and staff help educate many young girls with the aim of giving these young girls the opportunity to be accepted into Model C government high schools. By supporting Ububele, you will be directly involved in the education of women in society.
