Following the data access challenges that were highlit during the recent Covid lockdowns the school is currently working to improve the internet fibre connection direct to the campus. A tender process has been established to select a Service Provider for an initial 12 month contract for upgrading data speeds from 26 mps to 200 mps using the current fibre connection. The cost of the project, along with wifi extender equipment to distribute the higher speed link across the campus is estimated at ZAR 2 million. Please have look at the Project Data Brochure at the following link: www.kamhlabafund.com
Any contribution you are able to make to this key development project will be administered by the Advancement Office of the school with the support of the Waterford Kamhlaba Foundation of South Africa (WKFSA). WKFSA is Chaired by Sandile Hlophe, also an alumnus of the school. The Advancement Office Director is Lizz Mahngami (pse see below)
