Consider how the education of one child can influence the future of a family, inspire the ambitions of siblings and change the course of their future children's opportunities...
We believe that this can be a reality if our investment in a child’s education is one of quality and purpose.
Our organization is geared towards bridging the divide between the current state of education for the disadvantaged and opportunities for children to achieve beyond what is currently expected. We strive to be the hand that paints a world of greater opportunities and even greater dreams for children whose worlds have been greyed by limited choices and unfortunate circumstances.
The facts are clear and worrying:

Having a desk, a chair, a classroom and a teacher is simply not enough to educate. We need to ask about the quality of the education our children receive. Why are the matric results of our poor children so dismal? Why are our poor children not making it to tertiary education?
We are a small organization with big ideas. With enough passion and drive to mold the steps towards a model that will bring hope to South Africa's poor. To achieve this requires a formula of ubuntu combined with a focus on quality above quantity and patience above haste.
We have laid the foundation for our vision with our first project
