The Good Start Trust
PBO ref: 930061524 | NPO ref: 263-354
In Cape Town, since 2016, we have been supporting learners at Good Hope Seminary Junior School. In 2019, we set up the Breakfast Club to support St Mary’s Primary School in Tuinplein Street. At both schools, most of the young learners are bussed in daily from disadvantaged homes far outside the city. At home, there is often a lack of nourishment and children typically do not eat before leaving for school. There is often also a lack of funding to address learning difficulties that need attention from professional therapists. Our aim is to fill these gaps in order to support our learners and assist them to improve their academic performance, thus giving them better opportunities for their future.
A Letter From A Learner’s Parent
Ι “It is every parent wish that every child is well fed, well clothed amongst other basics that a child requires in order to maximise concentration as the students go about their learning process”
