Over the years Cape Town Office have made a few friends, or you might call them worthy causes to champion. We decided to dedicate a page to these warriors for good and would also like to add that our most recent friends are also resident here at CTO.
Thope Foundation is a non-profit organisation working to improve the education landscape for young girls in South Africa. The organisation seeks to address the very extreme challenges experienced by young girls both within schools and the communities from which the girls come from. The vast majority of South African communities are ravaged by high levels of unemployment, poverty, violence, infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and TB, teenage pregnancy and increasing levels of school dropout. The most vulnerable groups are small children, young girls and women who often bear the burden of poverty and inequality. Thope uses positive female role models from the communities to mentor and support young girls to mitigate the effects of the harsh and violent reality for most young girls, to prevent school dropout, teenage pregnancy and build resilience of girls towards a brighter future.
Thope Foundation’s vision is to drive change in transforming the lives of girl children through education.
