Born in Africa organization

What a delight to connect with the Born in Africa organization team in Plettenberg Bay in May. 

They were enthusiastic and delighted with the ideas and set about sharing and putting the ideas into practice!

Knowledge + action = power to make a difference! 

The Born in Africa is a non-profit organisation which has been active in schools in socio-economically disadvantaged areas in Plettenberg Bay and the surrounds since its establishment in 2003. Our mission is to develop well rounded, independent and successful young adults who can act as role models in their communities. Our focus is on education and social upliftment. We give extensive academic, social and life skills support which includes the provision of school uniforms, individual mentorship, social development group activities, career guidance, extracurricular classes, educational activities, life skills development, camps and the opportunity to study at tertiary level for qualifying students.

Thank you so much for the workshop last week; it was really inspirational, encouraging, and motivating! It's also so wonderful to know someone who has already done so much in the type of education that I'm interested in and to have a role model! 

I'll be starting at Little STAR today at Mannenberg and I'll be sure to email you or WhatsApp you with any questions or queries. Thank you so much for your kindness and for sharing your passion for education!

Yours truly, Brontte Hwang UCT Eductation SHAWCO Student
