Reduce school-drop outs and create a better community

Personal message

The Covid19 pandemic has affected our children's education in a massive way and its effect will be endured in the years to come. Learners have lost more than a term's school time.

Schools and teachers have done their best to their capacity to help learners during lock down via remote learning, however for children with no resources such internet, data  or  cell phone the methods used to reach out are not effective.

For more than 12 years ,ABC for Life has provided literacy and numeracy support to more than 500 learners per year in our most vulnerable communities in Hout Bay .

ABC for Life, believes that every child deserves good education and a strong foundation built by literacy and numeracy support will go a long way in creating a better future for our children.

We would like to try bridge the gaps created by Covid19 lockdown setback by distributing literacy and numeracy materials to as many children as possible. We are also running a book campaign. Reading is very essential and most of our learners do not have reading books at home.

Through your support we can distribute reading books for our learners and send extra school homework to keep them busy in the days they are not at school inorder for them to catch up on the work they missed.

No amount is too small!

Every donation is Tax deductible and we are also BEE complaint.
