We are a non-profit education development agency. Our mission is to provide quality education development opportunities for mathematics and science teachers and learners in under-resourced and rural schools in South Africa. Our organisation offers teaching support, content support, and resources for teaching and learning. We are also offer support for professional learning communities, school leadership support and psycho-social support programmes. We are also involved in advocacy work and research within the education sector.
Our goal is to ensure that hundreds of thousands of young people become alive to their potential and recognize their ability to lead change in their own lives, their schools and communities. We also aim to ensure that high schools in South Africa become aware that learners working in partnership with adults can do much to strengthen schools through effective social action. Our purpose is to transform the culture of schools to change the trajectory of youth. We work in close association with the Department of Education, building the capacity of high schools, serving economically disadvantaged communities to embed our values-based leadership model.
We work with 21 schools in a deeply rural and under-resourced area of KwaZulu-Natal. We run pre-schools, offer ‘top-up’ teaching programmes with a particular focus on Maths and English, provide educator development and mentoring support, and have a life skills and job-readiness programme. This allows us to support over 6 000 students and 200 educators from their first contact with education, through to a student’s consideration of what’s next.

Our aim is to support learners by providing the necessary skills required to define life and career goals, enabling them to formulate high school exit plans before reaching grade twelve. Learners in Grade 8 receive an exciting psychosocial support programme called Minds and Hearts that leaves them fired up to remain committed to school. We then offer a Career Coaching programme for Grades 10 to 12. We believe that by Grade 12, every learner must have a clearly defined exit strategy. By providing the proper support at the right age and school level, we aim to transform the way learners think and feel about achieving dreams and life desires.
