Letsibogo Girls School (Completed, 2022)

Letsibogo is a girls-only school situated in the heart of Soweto, in one of the oldest townships called Meadowlands, and is classified as a no-fee paying school, meaning it serves an extremely poor community.

The SAME Foundation assisted the school by establishing two new computers centres to accommodate more ICT learners, and established two science senior and one junior science laboratory to enhance science education at the school.


As a top-achieving all-girls no-fee school, Letsibogo was a recipient of three new fully equipped science laboratories and two computer centres in 2021/22. Letsibogo has since been appointed as a school of specialisation in STEM. This means that they will now evolve further, and the learners will complete various STEM projects throughout the year, including areas such as robotics, coding, and hydropower.  


Our aim is to continue this high-impact project that is showing significant change and improvement. With your assistance we can assist Letsibogo Girls Secondary School become the leading school in the country, which will have a huge impact on the future of the girls.  

Project Outcomes – Science Innovation Centre 

We are currently building an 80m2 Science Innovation Centre. This innovation centre will be the hub of the school’s STEM projects program, we will then endeavour to assist them with their projects in this centre.  

Using the innovation centre, the school will embark upon the following projects:  

  • Creating a hydro powered energy system that can also work with wind energy to curb the effect of loadshedding on the school 
  • Creating robots that can pick up papers to tidy up the school 
  • Creating a PA system powered by solar.  
  • Creating a Radio station for the school. 
  • Creating an automatic register that will mark the learners present using biometrics and send messages to the school and parents to curb absenteeism. 

Equipment and resources: 

  • The room will be furnished to accommodate 40 learners. 
  • Science and robotics kits will be provided that allow the learners to build basic robotics systems. 
  • The centre will be equipped with 10 tablets containing the robotics curriculum. 
  • Teachers have been trained on the robotics curriculum and system, and are able to effectively teach the learners robotics. 
  • The school will be participating in a STEM and robotics competition later in the year, where they will compete with the top schools in the region, and display one of their inventions.
