Good Work Foundation is a rural education non-profit organisation with a solid track record of success.
Teachers and principals at the schools we work with report markedly improved Mathematics and English outcomes for the thousands of primary school learners who receive free supplementary education at the Open Learning Academies on our six digital learning campuses.
Besides this, our Bridging Year Academy graduates achieve great success in either finding jobs or applying to college or university, and we have an extremely high placement rate for our IT, hospitality, conservation and facilitator graduates. Together with our partners, our Ecosystem of Learning and Working is taking on the pandemic of joblessness in South Africa.
Our demonstrated impact is proof that the GWF education model works. We are grateful for the support of partners, donors, sponsors and friends who help sustain our operations – and are always looking for new avenues of support to scale our model and thereby help more communities reach their full potential.

We offer complementary creative and digital education to primary school learners, and bridging education and vocation-driven training to school leavers. Then, we help place graduates at our partner tourism, farming and contact-centre establishments.
That’s our superpower as a non-profit organisation – being at the junction of philanthropy and social enterprise development!
