Additional Info about Us
The permanent staff work to keep the after school program working for children 4-7 grade. They also run the Youth Café, a skills development program for youth.
ILB is an organization that works to create educational opportunities for children with great potential and provides skills development programming for the youth in the Crossroads and Nyanga townships. ILB assists learners from grade 4-7 and provides them with daily homework assistance, Saturday tutoring sessions, academic enrichment programmes, and cultural activities. We work with high-potential, committed learners to help them maintain high marks and ensure a more promising future at university and beyond. Our programme trains university students from Cape Town to serve as tutors. Tutors not only work to improve learners’ academic performance but also serves as role models who are living examples of individuals who have successfully journeyed from township to university.
Our skills development programme, called Youth Café, is for the youth (age 18-35). We provide courses to help our participants acquire skills that will help them be employable, become entrepreneurs, or pursue other routes that assure success.
