Let the learning BEGIN
Bhongolethu Foundation is an emerging Non Profit Organisation with a mission to
provide quality education of exceptional standards to disadvantaged communities.
We are making education a positive and possible experience for children in the Masiphumelele region. In Masiphumelele, which means ‘we will succeed’, life is hard for its residents. Besides facing a severe lack of infrastructure and healthcare, as well as an absence of law enforcement, the children in the community desperately need more schools.
Bhongolethu has the belief in the uniqueness and potential of every child and will provide them with an individually suited education that takes into account the current educational landscape of South Africa. Children will have a sense of belonging and they will take pride in being apart of the Bhongolethu Foundation and demonstrate care, compassion and mutual respect towards themselves and each other. The best interest in the well-being of every child is of priority to us.
Bhongolethu’s Educare will be a community ECD program that ensures that children who attend the school will live up to their full potential, while improving parent-child relationships. Bhongolethu Foundation will assist in ensuring that residents of Masiphumelele live up to its name ‘we will succeed’ and this ultimately means that there will be more South African citizens who are healthy, productive and contribute to the countries work force and to the growth of South Africa’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
We believe education is paramount to South Africa’s growth and success and Bhongolethu Foundation will provide its children with the best education to support their future opportunities.
