Personal message

The beginning:

Lucky has completed a 12 month additional literacy programme which has enabled him to read better. His life path has been changed in a REAL WAY, forever. Tracy made a positive choice to make a real difference. She has been reading twice a week with Lucky for over a year as part of the Books & Beyond team. She changed Lucky’s future for the better in a REAL WAY.

The good news is that what started as a group of 4 volunteer moms in 2014, has now grown to 19 real people that are reading twice a week with REAL LEARNERS just like Lucky, improving their reading by an average of 10%.

The present:

What started out as a literacy programme has rapidly escalated to other programmes including:

  • Enabling 6 REAL YOUNG VOLUNTEERS to be actively involved with additional literacy and numeracy programmes every day after school
  • Getting a previously unused library into a REAL FUNCTIONAL state again
  • Supporting a feeding programme for 100 REAL HUNGRY CHILDREN
  • Assisting with set-up and maintenance of a REAL COMPUTER LAB
  • And many more real initiatives making a REAL DIFFERENCE every single day!

The future:

The REAL CHALLENGE is that there are 1 514 learners just like Lucky at Sophakama. We still need to do so much more! Our goal is to achieve REAL SUSTAINABLE CHANGE at Sophakama to create a well-performing school, with committed staff, that offers Lucky and the other REAL LEARNERS an environment of continuous learning.

We have accomplished all this so far on the goodwill of volunteers and donations. Now we need others to join as financial partners so that we can keep focussing on the many real challenges at Sophakama. We want to assist the teachers in reaching ALL the real learners. Let’s turn Sophakama into one of the Western Cape’s leading schools!

We believe that individual efforts by REAL PEOPLE can make a difference and change schools.

Create REAL SUSTAINABILITY. Make a REAL DIFFERENCE. Please consider making a once off donation or even partnering with us by becoming a contributor so that, together, we can build towards REAL SUSTAINABLE CHANGE.
