South Africa has one of the world's worst education systems with problems dating back to the apartheid. Our educational programs work alongside partner organisations in communities outside of Cape Town to provide quality education to young people. Through quality education, we aim to increase job prospects and opportunities within the community which in-turn will have a positive impact on overall quality of life.
Nomzamo still faces the harsh conditions of inequality and many areas are effected by water pollution due to poor sanitation and substandard housing conditions. These overpopulated communities with poor access to resources also face challenges when it comes to Education. Poor infrastructure, sub-standard teaching quality and high-drop out rates have resulted in South African schools being declared as among the most inept in the world.
