Seeing the bigger picture

Improving the prospects of young people from the poorest communities begins with education.

The Eastern Cape is one of the poorest regions of the country. The rural and remote Xhora Mouth Administrative Area epitomises the most acute poverty challenges.

We fund the non-profit Bulungula Incubator, which was set up in 2007 to improve conditions for this community.

Education is a priority. Investment in an early learning centre, new pre-schools, libraries, after-school enrichment programmes and teacher training has improved access to education for the children of Xhora Mouth.


What they learn

Early childhood development emphasises:

  • cognitive development
  • physical development
  • social development

The percentage of the population of Xhora Mouth with no schooling will soon be less than 20%, compared to 46% in 2001 (Bulungula Incubator, 2013).
