The Living Language Foundation -A Non-Profit Organisation

One of the greatest challenges facing the youth of South Africa, is receiving the adequate educational foundation that they will need to successfully integrate into the higher-education system and thereafter the South African, and global, employment space. With the these post-matric environments being a primarily dominated by the English Language, worryingly little time is dedicated in the traditional school system to focusing on equipping second language learners with the level of English proficiency that they require to succeed in their futures. The Living Language Foundation is a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to strengthening underprivileged learners’ English foundation, by offering free after school English-Second-Language classes. This initiative is run in the Garden Route, in the Western Cape, but hopes to expand further into the province.

The Living Language Foundation is strengthening South Africa's academic future!

We need your involvement! If you would like to contribute to the foundation, there are many ways that you can make a difference.
