Empowering Individuals Towards Changing Communities
A partnership with the Good Work Foundation was established in response to repeated offers from guests who wished to partner with Londolozi to create a better, more balanced world. It is a not for profit organisation promoting the education of disadvantaged individuals in rural areas. Funds received by the Foundation are directed towards a variety of educational projects.
The Good Work Foundation provides a detailed screening process of candidates ensuring that only those who have proved their commitment and enthusiasm to achieving their own personal best in education are selected for onward learning. Quarterly financial reporting and photographic feedback is provided to our donors on the academic and life skills progress made by the students.
The Good Work Foundation is committed to doing just that, Good Work.
This is achieved by bringing positive Community Development Interventions to the rural communities in which we work. Through Education and aligned building interventions, it is our mission to assist and promote the transformation that is taking place in South Africa. Using the wilderness as our classroom and by building individual’s self-esteem during added-value teaching interventions we hope to do our part in instilling hope for the future.
We at the Good Work Foundation believe that we need to start building people if we are to redress South Africa’s History and to play a part in making it the place we believe it can be. Education will be used as a way to influence and invest in young people and will facilitate them to become the best version of themselves, to contribute to their communities and to South Africa.
The Good Work Foundation has the following main focuses:
- To identify latent talent in the learners in our communities by providing workshops, career guidance and extra classes, and to then grant bursaries for them to study further
- To work alongside existing educational institutions and assist in providing extra classes, workshops and learning interventions
- Extending our literacy training (English, Computer, Environmental and Financial to adults in our area)
- To assist with educational infrastructure where the need arises
- To increase our role and influence through Future Nature in the teaching of Environmental Literacy to young rural South Africans through workshops, conservation clubs and programmes at the local schools, and Future Nature Bushschools for the local children.
