South Africa: After School and Life Skills Project

  • Status

    Ongoing

  • Location Nigel

The Alstom Foundation worked in close partnership with two local primary schools, Alra Park Primary School and Happiness Primary, on the first phase of the After School and Life Skills Project in South Africa in 2018, which is now in its second phase.  

The aim is to help 200 vulnerable children affected and/or infected by AIDS to improve their performance in school and acquire basic life skills. But the overall global goal of the FXB Afterschool Life Skills program is to help youth better cope with the extreme hardships of their daily lives and empower them with the tools they need to live their life with dignity. In order to reach this goal, the program follows four specific objectives:

- Improve school performance and encourage students to pursue further studies
- Enhance the psychosocial status of the youth beneficiaries
- Enhance the life and leadership skills of the students
- Raise community awareness
