About us

We are running an adult education programme in Limpopo. We have about 2000 learners spread over the five districts of Limpopo - all extremely rural sites. All of our learners are unemployed, and many of them are women supporting children and grandchildren. These people do not receive any payment for coming to class and yet have been unbelievably committed to the process of learning. Many of these people were completely illiterate, not even able to write their names. The reasons cited for wanting to learn have been things like: Wanting to access a grant / get an ID book / get a birth certificate without having to pay someone to help. Wanting to read the Bible / Hymn Book during church services. Wanting to participate in children´s education. Wanting to use ATMs (Autobanks) independently - many illiterate people are conned by own family members. Wanting to read medicine instructions - when and how to take medication correctly.
As the festive season approaches, we are increasingly aware of the day to day struggles that our learners face. Just feeding themselves and their families on a daily basis is a challenge - things like paraffin, candles, airtime, soap, school uniforms, school stationery and clothing are all secondary problems.
In terms of an immediate response, we hope that you can make a donation towards a Christmas Fund for our learners. We aim to, at the very least, give each learner a food voucher that can be redeemed at a Metro Cash and Carry.

Donations that cannot be used for the project

  Mirjam u.  24 February 2017 at 04:46 PM

Dear donors,
when managers of a project haven't requested a payout over the course of a longer period, the German law and our terms of use provide that we (gut.org gemeinnützige AG, operator of betterplace.org) use the money for our tax-deductible purposes. The same applies to the cancellation of a project, where the manager of the project is unable to realize it.

Therefore we will use these donations for the following purposes

Thanks for your support,
the betterplace.org-team
