Unlocking potential Improving lives

We’re all born to be something.

Through our Born to Be youth engagement programme, we’re working to make sure young people get an education that enables them to realise their full potential.

There are nearly 3,5 million young South Africans out of work because they do not have the skills to participate in the economy. Our goal is to equip the next generation to be the workforce of tomorrow.

We believe our best chance of improving the lives of young South Africans is through early childhood education. Research shows that early intervention can provide greater returns than remedial action when children are older (Heckman, 2013). Our strategies for improving early years education include training and professional development for teachers.
