The Ganjo Scholarship was founded in 2007 to commemorate the memory of Ganjo Njokweni who died tragically in a skateboarding accident in 2007 shortly after joining Elkanah House High School. The Scholarship was initiated to provide an annual scholarship for a black, coloured or asian student who may not otherwise have the chance to do so. Over the past five years, Elkanah House has awarded five Ganjo Scholarships to deserving individuals.
