• Our vision

    Is to build a community in which all children are equipped with the skills and knowledge to become productive members of society. We wish to empower learners with the skills and self-confidence to achieve their academic potential and embrace education as the key to their future.

  • Our objective

    Is to provide support to primary school learners who have fallen behind in the key skills of English, Mathematics and Afrikaans and to improve the numeracy and literacy skills amongst the primary school learners that need to most help.

  • Our Long-Term plan

    Is to duplicate our programme with other schools around South Africa and to open a special needs class.


ABC for Life was established in 2007 with the belief that “one good action creates another”. With over twelve years since inception, ABC for Life knows that the long-term economic, social and personal gains from education are immeasurable for individuals, families, communities and the development of the country. This is why we strongly believe that education is the key to success

We have developed programmes that strive to empower children with the skills and self-confidence to achieve their academic potential.

Conveniently based within the school grounds of Sentinel Primary School in Hout Bay near Cape Town, South Africa, ABC for Life gives children living in the impoverished communities of Hangberg and Imizamo Yethu access to school-based support in literacy and numeracy. We also give support to other primary schools in the Western Cape by training educators and providing literacy intervention materials.
