About The Bambisanani Partnership

The Bambisanani Partnership is a unique collaboration developed by St. Mary’s Catholic High School, Menston in the UK, and Mnyakanya High School in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. Bambisanani is the Zulu word for “working hand in hand” and aptly encapsulates the partnership between the two schools. The initiative, which began in 2006, has gained both national and international acclaim. With the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the 2012 Olympic Games in London, the Bambisanani Partnership has used sport as a major catalyst to develop international understanding, education, health and leadership. Mnyakanya High School is situated in the rural and remote Nkandla region of Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa. The school, in the heart of traditional Zululand, was opened by Nelson Mandela in 2004 and is located in one of the most deprived areas of South Africa with one in three adults infected by HIV/AIDS, 90% unemployment and an adult illiteracy rate greater than 60%.The school serves a vast area and many students walk two hours to and from school each day. The area has many AIDS orphans. Class sizes are in excess of 60 and the school has very limited resources. Mnyakanya has over 850 students.

"Such an easy way to raise money for charity, with no effort. Easy to use website and help available if needed. Huge choice of charities, the problem as ever is who to support as each and everyone is worthy!"

"There's quite a few sites similar to easyfundraising. But where this site stands out is it's helpful & quick replies to queries. It is so easy to set up an account & to start saving for a good cause - I've recommended easyfundraising to a lot of my friends, and they're as impressed as I am with the ease of how it works."

"I run a not for profit Community Interest Company and shared our cause. Very easy to use, templates ready to share on social media, with direct links to our page and pop up reminders installed for when I was shopping with numerous websites, where I could gain the free donation. Excellent service and a fabulous idea."
