ABC for Life was established in 2007 with the belief that “one good action creates another”. With a 16-year track record of implementing successful learning programs, ABC for Life knows first-hand that the long-term economic, social, and personal gains from education are immeasurable for individuals, families, communities, and the development of our country. To this end, our educational interventions have been developed to empower children with the skills and self-confidence to achieve their academic potential.
ABC for Life currently provides intensive literacy support to 580 Foundation Phase learners (Grade R-4) every month at 3 under-resourced schools serving some of the poorest learners in Cape Town, namely Sentinel Primary (Hangberg, Hout Bay), Hout Bay Primary (Imizamo Yethu) and Ellerton Primary (Sea Point).
