We aim to build a culture of reading in deep rural schools by establishing hot spot libraries and ensuring that books are freely accessible at a zero cost to children through our One Book, One School Literacy Development Programme. Through this we hope to play our part in decreasing the high rate of illiteracy in rural areas.

Here at Kwanhliziyonye Resource Care Centre we offer a number of services that cater to vulnerable people in our community. We care for TB and HIV positive individuals, linking them with the relevant health care facilities. We also care for orphans and vulnerable children, providing nutrition and a homework / after school programme. We do school visits where we educate learners about teenage pregnancy. Above this, we also run a door to door campaign where we engage with our community on the importance of the first one thousand days of life, where we aim to educate people about the value of good child nutrition.
In South Africa, 78% of Grade Four children cannot read for meaning (PIRLS, 2016). We, at Shine Literacy, are helping to transform the prospects of some of South Africa’s most vulnerable children by breaking the destructive cycle of poor literacy, low educational attainment, wasted potential and poverty. We do this by providing structured English literacy support to children, providing storybooks and readers and empowering parents and caregivers through Family Literacy Workshops. We work in partnership with like-minded NGO’s, individuals and non-profit organisations to raise awareness and develop approaches that are appropriate and sustainable.

Through rigorous training, we give teachers the tools to use the power of genre-based pedagogy in every subject for every learner at every level. Our methodology has been developed in response to current urgent needs, particularly of marginalised learners, to rapidly improve reading and writing for educational access and success. These theoretical foundations are integrated in a set of teaching strategies that are optimally practical in diverse classroom settings, and accessible for teachers to acquire and use as part of their ordinary practice in their grade or curriculum area.
Commonly known as “LoveLife”, we are a South African non-profit youth organisation that was established in 1999 as a joint initiative of leading South African non-governmental organisations, private foundations and the South African government. With the passage of time our vision has evolved to not only focus on HIV prevention, but rather to become “a leader in Youth Health Promotion” where Health, in line with the World Health Organisation (WHO), is defined as a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”. We position our programmes not only for risk reduction and active lifestyles but also as the generator of empowered young people with a better future. We are POWERING THE FUTURE!

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.
