In 2009, together with our partner organisation Heartbeat, Go Ahead! opened a learning centre in the Jozini region of KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. With this centre we are promoting a sustainable improvement in the dramatic situation of AIDS orphans in the region. Through our centre, 667 AIDS orphans are being directly helped today.
What does the Learning Center achieve?
Go Ahead! and Heartbeat have two major goals in supporting the Learning Center. For one, to provide AIDS orphans with a safe haven, psychological counselling, warm meals and academic support. And secondly, we use the LC to implement Heartbeat's training program for members of the community and social workers who extend the reach of our projects.
Reports and news
Heartbeat regularly publish reports on the development, successes and issues of the LC. Furthermore, Go Ahead! members visit the project frequently to get a more personal impression, and check on the use of donation funds. These reports are available on the German version of this site.
