Our Academic Skills Programmes

Health Literacy

This program address the specific health needs of our children and youth within our resource poor community. The needs identified are high levels of malnutrition, HIV, TB, teenage pregnancy, physical and drug abuse and chronic illnesses.

Homework clubs (daily)

Providing the space and time for our children to do their homework with assistance from a teacher or supervision of an adult.


Reading groups

Providing our children with exposure to books, different languages, the love of reading and storytelling.


Computer Skills

We provide free access to computers and facilitate educational games, project research, computer skills, social media exposure and basic internet use. Printing and scanning facilities are provided school projects.

LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO HELP

The education of our children is one of our biggest challenges.  Having a good grounding is the surest way to ensure future academic success and a high road out of poverty.

Please come and volunteer and be 'a parent' for our children when doing homework in the afternoons.  Together we will make a difference and this work is too important and too big to do alone!
