Challenge

Townships still faces the harsh conditions of inequality and many areas are affected by water pollution due to poor sanitation and substandard housing conditions. These overpopulated communities with poor access to resources also face challenges when it comes to Education. Poor infrastructure, sub-standard teaching quality and high-drop out rates have resulted in South African schools being declared as among the most inept in the world.

Solution

Our educational program adopts a small group teaching style with primary school students which helps support the students learning with the aim of improving both their math and reading skills. Our school provides opportunities within the school and local community bringing sustainable skills to the classroom. Our school includes sports PE lessons, swimming lessons, visits to the local beach while bringing in local authorities to showcase their work too.

Long-Term Impact

At the root of education, we hope to improve students level of English but also their confidence and self-esteem. Enabling students to successfully graduate from High School which will cause a ripple effect in the community. Access to quality education helps create greater job opportunities which in turn has a positive impact on employment rates and general health and living standards. By assisting, we hope to increase young people's prospects of a brighter future and a sustainable community.
