Challenge

Children in this community face myriad challenges including malnutrition, poor access to education, and a lack of emotional support or security. These inequities cause barriers to developmental, educational, and skills advancements and without effective interventions, children growing up at the centre of these problems face no chance of succeeding.

Solution

Members of the community are hired and trained to prepare for their roles as both educational facilitators and role models. Our creative learning curriculum model aims to give children a meaningful education and help them develop important life skills by using stories, art, music, science, and maths to make lateral connections across subject areas. Creativity and life skills are prized above knowledge and right answers, and children are encouraged to have fun and take risks.

Long-Term Impact

Currently, we support 735 vulnerable children and youth in rural South Africa. Through these programmes, we aim to empower the next generation of citizens with the knowledge and skills necessary to feel fulfilled and to contribute positively to their communities.
