Education changes everything
Lessons for Life helps vulnerable kids to stay at school by paying for lunches, uniforms and materials. We also directly cover school fees, and focus on teacher training because we know how vital it is
that kids learn lessons for life once they’re in the classroom. To give kids every chance to thrive in their school life, we fund many refurbishment projects from classrooms to kitchens, libraries to lavatories.
Supporting children in South Africa
Education and wellbeing
In 2015 alone, The Kusasa Project supported 152 students in their learning, from early years all the way through to university or college. Alongside their education, students were also given a range of ‘well-being’ services such as counselling, extra tuition, speech therapy, homework clubs and feeding programmes. Furthermore, Kusasa supports parents, and especially single mothers, to keep kids learning at home so education doesn’t stop at the school gates.
'I shall cherish the beauty of education with my brothers and sisters in my motherland South Africa. My dream is to give back and offer my service as a doctor. I believe that one that promotes a child in education promotes a development of our economy.'
Papama, South African student.
