Targeted learning for a better South Africa
Most of South Africa’s Grade 4 learners can’t read for meaning in any language. And in the rural areas where we work, youth unemployment is over 70%. How can we fix this?
Good Work Foundation’s Ecosystem of Learning and Working delivers targeted learning programmes to thousands of rural adults and children every week. This is just one of the ways we’re educating our youth and building a better South Africa.
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.
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!
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
