Somewhere, out there, in the rural regions of South Africa, lies unbelievable potential. Our job is to encourage and develop it, by providing these forgotten children, with resources, and above all: the belief that they can do it!

What we do


How your donation changes a life:

  • Computers and coding: gives our children an opportunity to improve technology skills and learn a language of the future. 
  • Youth: have full access to our computer centre, and attend training sessions in hard and soft skills development.
  • Data: running the only computer centre is the community and surrounds, is expensive. Online studies chew data, but give students access to knowledge, skills and training.
