About us

This project was founded to provide free computer training to children and youths of underprivileged families in South Africa.

Even as South Africa now a days is considered "quite wealthy" up till now a lot of children are growing up in low income areas and Townships, with hardly any perspective of more than basic education, but confronted with one of the highest crime rates in the world.

For those families, struggling with more essential things on a daily basis, investing money in their children education is just not possible.

Especially today having a basic knowledge about computers is vital for most jobs. Good education is one of the main factors to fight poverty!

Our pilot project is hosted in Delft, at the Western Cape, approx. 35km from Cape Town, a high crime - low employment community.

We started with 7 kids but the word got spread and now we have over 30 kids enrolled who are so eager to learn, it's exiting to see them getting better and better on their laptops on a daily basis. Our classes are no more than 10 kids at once, that gives us the opportunity to teach them individually and provide each one of them with the necessary attention they need.

Due to the versatile talents of our volunteers we are able to teach the kids from basics, get to know the computer and having fun with it, to a more advanced level up to Graphic Design - Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for our youths.
