We provide two safe homes to our beneficiaries who are in need of a safe home in Crossroads Township. We have two safe homes, one for girls and another one for boys where we provide children with a safe place to call home where they are provided with love, food, bed, internet, computer, a study space and a caring house master. We have done this to make sure that nothing stops our children from reaching their academic goals.
ILB ensures that learners stay on track during school breaks and keeps them occupied by providing educational and cultural programming in the Winter and Spring holidays. We believe that learners should spend their time in the most productive way possible.
While ILB partners with schools that offer exceptional value for money, learners often need financial assistance for school fees, uniforms, books, stationary and transportation. We help learners access bursary funds so they can afford the basic necessities needed to attend school.
To ensure a stronger path to University, ILB helps learners gain admittance to local high-performing high schools, such as LEAP Science and Maths Schools, Cape Academy for Maths, Science and Technology, Claremont High School, COSAT and Christel House.
ILB provides additional tutoring in Math and English using resources and materials that are tied to the South African national curriculum. We provide kids with time and support to help them improve and keep off the streets.
Learners need to maintain strong marks to gain admittance to high-performing high schools. ILB provides a safe space for learners to complete their homework with access to assistance from tutors. We currently have 200 children in our classes, from grade four to seven, drawn from primary schools from Crossroads and Nyanga.
