Where we work

We partner with 4 rural schools in the remote Gamtoos Valley area, approx. 1 hour northwest of Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape Province.

This collaboration involves about 900 students and 37 teachers. We facilitate weekly Creative Youth and Teacher Empowerment workshops, to help them develop enthusiasm and confidence in their education and vision for their personal future, to support them in unfolding their own potential and becoming a positive role model for their communities.

We support the teachers in learning to cultivate a positive classroom culture, in which, despite the adverse conditions in which they finds themselves in, they can develop empowering and supportive relationships with the children. This leads to mutual increased efficiency and joy in learning and develops personal creativity, peace and confidence. And there is so much more that is in the pipeline…
