Charity profile

One Heart is a South African and USA registered non-profit organisation focusing on literacy in South Africa. The effects of the pandemic on children have been catastrophic, with approximately 1.5 billion children globally who are not benefitting from continuous schooling due to rolling lockdowns. For many children, not being in school for  protracted periods of time means that they will never return to school. Moreover, in 2020 the Grade 12  in South Africa was 44%. In response to this national crisis, One Heart raises funds for literacy curriculum for under-resourced primary schools and psycho-social support and play therapy for at-risk children. One Heart is a programme within the registered NGO: the Sustainable Development Network. www.oneheartforkids.co.za  www.sdnafrica.org
