Our vision is to see South African Youth EDUCATED, EQUIPPED & EMPOWERED to succeed.

We believe in the successful future of the next generation. We know that every life has the potential to become successful. Our vision is fixed on empowering that potential to see it become a reality.

At KwaCare, we strive to relieve the socio-economic pressures that our learners face believing that if we can address these pressures, we can see our learners become educated and gain access to opportunities which can open the door to a successful future.

We see education as essential to alleviating poverty in our community and our nation. If we can assist the youth of South Africa in attaining their rightful education, we will see the socio-economic environment become diversely inclusive, and access to opportunities become equal for everyone.


Since 1995, KwaCare has worked consistently in KwaDabeka, a community in the heart of Kwa-Zulu Natal, to alleviate poverty through various initiatives. Through these initiatives, we have seen many lives touched and transformed. In the last ten years, however, we have learned that education is the one tool which can consistently produce sustainable change and, in the long-term, assist in alleviating poverty. As Nelson Mandela so wisely said:

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Today more than 100,000 people live in KwaDabeka, many of whom live below the poverty threshold. The resultant socio-economic pressures have a huge implication on the value of education, with South Africa’s education statistics showing that 50% of students who start school won’t finish with a matric pass. Although these figures can be discouraging, we believe that the education crisis is a historical injustice that we need to address if we are to build a better future for South Africa.

Our experience over the years has taught us that many learners have been let down by the educational system in one way or another and are progressed through the grades with major gaps in their education.

These gaps are very difficult to identify and fill later on, leading to many learners not reaching the potential that we know they have.

This is where we step in!
