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 programs 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.
