The Sakhikamva Foundation

Based in Cape Town, is a registered non–profit organization involved in aviation awareness and skills development for the youth and children in the aerospace industry. The Foundation believes that the future of South African aerospace industry is anchored with the country’s highly talented youth, its mission being to identify and develop this talent in ensuring that a solid foundation is laid to feed the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) pipeline. It prides itself in building a future with the youth of South Africa and sets out to achieve its mission by hosting several programs and outreach projects each year. Come on board and join one of our exciting programmes.

Programmes

Wings 2 Fly

Wings 2 Fly

In partnership with Airlink, learners get the opportunity to observe pilots in the flight deck. Grade 10-11 learners enter the campaign and the top 6 candidates are selected. The Wings2 Fly campaign has running since 2010 with more than 20 participants some of whom are now successful cadet pilots.

Robotics Development

Robotics Development

With a choice of two robotics workshops, hosted in partnership with AppShed. Participants (grade 5-9) can explore the technology and app building behind robots. The project is peer mentored by the First Robotics Team of Pascack Hills High School in the USA. The 2017 theme is road safety. Participants have to programme their robots to maneuver through a town obeying road safety rules.

Paper Jet Challenge

Paper Jet Challenge

Participants compete in team of three in the following categories: Time in the air, distance and design category. The attempt at the world record is getting there slowly with learners grade 5-9 competing and the current record is at 36m and time in the air is 12 seconds.

Africa Code week

Africa Code week

We introduce coding to 2000 learners across South Africa encouraging them that Mathematics can be fun.

The Sky’s the Limit

The Sky’s the Limit

An opportunity for 36 young South Africans to experience flight for the first time. The day is packed with related aviation activities at Morningstar.

Scholarship Fund

Scholarship Fund

With a kick-start from Cape Microlight Club, sponsoring 2 participants to receive a PPL scholarship. Alexander Villette completed his PPL in 45 hours and Arnold Mauritz is in process of completing his. Recipients must do min. 10 hours/month volunteer work at the foundation, allowing them to develop project management, organizational skills & becoming active supporters of our mission. Currently 7 pilots enrolled in this programme.

The STREAM laboratory is our operational hub for innovation. Our activities include a mathematics support program in partnership with NMMU focussing on grade 10-12 (pilot phase). Our vision is to expand grade R to grade 9 with the SmartMinds project grade with the Japanese Abacus based programme. Other activities are the Youth Empowerment Project and the Link Camp exposing youth to the aviation industry and leadership development.
