  • The Bookery

  • We create and support libraries in under-resourced schools. We set up the space and employ a young person in the community as a library assistant (LA) to maintain and facilitate the library. We then continue to provide literacy support through activities, competitions, site visits, LA meetings and training workshops. Our mission is to create a culture of reading. We believe that every child deserves to experience the power and joy of reading and the opportunity to become informed, active citizens.

Members of our clubs will be taught and trained on how to be an effective community organiser/activist, and will be supported by the foundation through an education and training program.

  • MusicWorks

  • We are a Non-Profit Organisation that uses the power of music to unlock potential in the lives of children and their communities. We use music to create safe spaces for engagement, creativity, care and healing. We work with primary school learners to help nurture their self -esteem and resilience by using music and dance as our intervention. Our theory of change suggests that inclusive, quality education should include fostering the socio-emotional development of children living in poverty. We know that in order for children to reach their full potential and to become contributing members of society, it is imperative that they have access to safe, supportive spaces where they can build resilience and acquire personal and social skills that will help them to survive amidst adversity.
