Masifunde's work is driven by the vision of a united society in which everyone is empowered through high-quality education to participate pro-actively and confidently in societal issues and thereby initiating positive change in their own lives and the lives of others. We provide educational support in a holistic and sustainable manner to over 450 motivated learners from Walmer Township in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Throughout our learners are trained in three fields of education (formal, informal and extra-curricular), while being assisted individually through social workers.
We train our learners to become changemakers (multipliers, active role models), who are enabled to take over responsibility in their community and who systematically share their learnings and know-how with their peers.
Our programmes enable them to make full use of their potential, achieve academically and in life, to ultimately break the cycle of poverty and to encourage others to follow their example.
In 2018, we has added a Montessori pre-school as well as an Out-of-School Youth Center to its portfolio of services offered to the community of Walmer Township, allowing youth of all age groups, i.e. pre-school, primary and high school, post-school) access to high-quality educational interventions.
