What we do
We challenge HOW we learn, WHAT we learn and WHO has access to learning. We are reimagining education in South Africa to use it as a tool for a future of abundance for all.
What we strive for
Our goal is to deliver wonder-filled 21st-century learning opportunities to rural and marginalised communities in South Africa.
What we envision
Our dream is to export the Good Work Foundation model as a sustainable blueprint for future rural education that can be scaled to other parts of sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere in the world.

Our education philosophy

At Good Work Foundation (GWF) we believe that good learning is about creating nurturing environments that are engaging and fun. 

That’s why every day, on every GWF campus, we take joy in exposing South Africa’s children and young adults to wonder-filled learning aimed at narrowing the “digital divide”.

As passionate educators, we want rural South African communities to flourish in the 21st-century digital world.

An Ecosystem of Learning and Working

We have pioneered a unique holistic ecosystem that partners with young people in their journey to becoming well-rounded, employable citizens of the future.

We offer creative and wonder-filled digital education, complementary to the school curriculum, to Grade 3 to Grade 7 primary school learners.

For school-leavers, we offer courses that “bridge the gap” between high school and the next big step in their lives, as well as vocation-driven training.

Then, we help place graduates at our partner tourism and contact centre establishments – bringing the education journey full circle to meaningful employment!

Award-winning digital education programmes

Over 5 000 rural children per year experience wonder-filled learning, opening pathways to a brighter future.

Over 500 rural youth trained in our bridging year and specialised bridging academies

Preparing children for employment in the future

Meaningful employment at GWF's social enterprise or in local growth industries

Each job supports 5 to 7 dependants, boosting the local economy & reversing urban migration

Profit from social enterprise injected back into GWF

Susan Strauss: When strangers become part of the GWF family

Often, in the busy-ness of life, we focus on being productive, successful and well-put-together individuals. This focus can sometimes give us tunnel vision  – we forget that we are part of a greater whole, and that there are incredible opportunities to connect with others
