What we do
Touch Africa's core focus is on the young previously disadvantaged learner and the charities strategy is to migrate these young school children from home to school.
One can only achieve this if we "make school a better place" be it improving sanitation, upgrading school kitchens and building class-rooms, libraries and science laboratories.
Touch Africa’s expertise also lies in the ability to leverage support from South African based corporates by offering them not only a CSI solution but also integrating these efforts into their classical marketing strategy.
Our focal points in the Education arena are:
- Literacy -
Building and supplying Libraries is one thing however improving literacy levels through consistent monitoring and evaluation is another. 18 libraries in last 24 months is a big feat.
- Early Childhood Development -
is a neglected component of the education sector. The aim here is to establish creches which are sustainable within needy communities.
- Community upliftment programmes -
Friday Flik is a movie night concept targeting rural and township communities with the aim of unifying communities and families and breaking the culture of alcohol and drug abuse. Friday Flik also gives schools the opportunity to create a revenue stream for upliftment initiatives.
- Adopt a School -
the identification of schools in need and finding suitable “twinning “ partners both locally and abroad.
