STEP Schools learners get to be involved in the CEO Sleep Out charity initiative in partnership with the Sun International to fight poverty and homelessness, a programme funded by executives who sleep outdoors for one night. Funda Afrika organises a competition amongst STEP schools learners to write a motivational essay as to why they should be selected to participate in the CEO Sleep Out. The winner gets to join our Funding CEO in sleeping outdoors raising funds and, significantly, gaining empathy for the homeless.
Ever single thing that was used on the night was given back to the homeless. From sleeping bags to firewood and blankets.
