A Big Thumbs Up to the Good Work Foundation

We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank the Good Work Foundation on all the incredible work they’ve been doing.

We’ve been watching and supporting them from the very beginning when our Founder John Holley helped them start one of the first rural centres for African learning excellence, while working at Londolozi. Since then they have grown from strength to strength teaching, empowering and even providing job opportunities for hundreds of students across rural South Africa. For all your hard work over the last decade we salute you!

For those of you who don’t know what they do here’s some more information on what they do and how you can get involved.

The Good Work Foundation’s Vision:

Rural African education, as it stands today, is not producing digitally literate individuals. Nor is it effectively engaging learners in skills that are required for competitiveness in the twenty first century workplace.

Young learners need specific, marketable skills if they are to sustainably empower themselves, their families and their communities.

Our vision is to lead a sustainable model of learning that can be introduced to rural African communities. The model will focus on delivering “digital-era” literacy education and career training via community-driven digital learning centres of excellence.

The centres need to be digitally-powered and “online”, allowing rural communities access to world-class education and cutting-edge technology.

We want to see rural African learners immersed in high impact learning experiences that are presented as they would be in the world’s most technologically advanced classrooms.
