Join the ABC FOR LIFE (HOUT BAY EDUCATIONAL TRUST) community
ABC for Life is a registered NPO (073-897) and PBO (930-029-913) under the umbrella of Hout Bay Educational Trust. We are based at Sentinel School in the community of Hangberg.
Our Vision: To equip the majority of the school leavers with the tools they need to become productive members of the society.
Our Mission: To provide a small-group environment for Sentinel Primary School learners who have fallen behind academically in the key areas of English, Afrikaans and Maths as to enable them to meet the required academic standards, build self-confidence and motivate them to stay in school and participate in afterschool programmes.
In the years that it has been in existence, ABC for Life has equipped literally thousands of children who would otherwise have failed with the skills to succeed at their education. These are children who, without ABC for Life’s intervention, would in all likelihood have dropped out of school functionally illiterate, innumerate and unemployable.
They would have swelled the ranks of the unemployed. Not only would they not have been in a position to make a meaningful and productive contribution to society, they would, as experience in the community of Hangberg has shown, cost the country dearly, either as recipients of government hand-outs, or as career criminals.
ABC for Life gives these children a foundation upon which they can build their lives. It gives them the skills to complete their schooling. It gives them a vision for their lives
