The Living Language Foundation is a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to strengthening underprivileged learners’ academic foundations.
After school English-Second-Language programs in underprivileged schools at no cost to the learners or schools.

The importance of solid academic foundations
“The transition which English second language (ESL) learners need to make when using English as a language of learning in higher education, is a matter of great concern in the South African higher education sector.” The Living Language Foundation was founded to address one of the greatest challenges facing the underprivileged youth of South Africa today - receiving the adequate educational English second language foundation that they will need to successfully integrate into the higher-education system and thereafter, the South African, and global, employment space.
