Help us make a difference
We are committed to help create a vibrant and resilient community where every child is supported to reach their full potential. Breaking inter-generational cycles of poverty requires deep and holistic investments that empower each individual with the awareness, skills and confidence to transform their futures – made possible by a rich network of support that ranges from nutrition and socio-emotional healing through to career development and daring to dream big. We achieve this through our holistic education programmes we offer for the children and youth of the Lynedoch Valley.
Lynedoch Community School
Make it possible for Lynedoch valley children to benefit from quality education, and become confident, self-aware and equipped young individuals that can actively participate in the community and society. Your donation will contribute towards school fees, uniforms, meals at school, cultural activities and educational excursions as well as counselling and social emotional support.
Donations can be an amount of your choice, or made in the following variables: R1000 | R3000 | R6000
Lynedoch Youth Programme
Enable us to continue providing strong academic support, career development, and a range of personal development activities that will shape individuals committed to creating better futures for themselves and who make positive contributions to society.
Donations can be an amount of your choice, or made in the following variables: R50 | R100 | R250 | R500
Sport for development
Sport is an enjoyable and active way to learn about team work, respect and commitment. Children who have participated in movement education activities have longer attention spans, determination, increased communication skills, general problem-solving skills and improved self-esteem. Your contribution will make it possible to buy equipment and offer a variety of inclusive sports.

For the grandmothers in the community, we host a regular Knitting Club. Grandmothers are often tasked with looking after the children and the knitting club provides them with an opportunity to create, to get out of the house, and to connect with their fellow community members. Contributions here are also welcome.

The Healing Hub
Across our programmes, we have experienced the need for socio-emotional support for our children, youth and their families – to cope with past and present traumas, and nurture the personal resilience to forge new futures.
Join us in an exciting journey as we build and open our long dreamed for Healing Hub in 2023 – bringing together our individual, group and community healing programmes.
