Jorvan Community Outreach Student Centre

Organizational Overview: Jorvan Community Outreach (“Outreach”) is a community-based organisation that supports positive youth development in townships within Cape Town. Efforts focus on educational, nutritional, health and social, support. Upon securing financial sponsorships, there is also a special emphasis placed on enrolling students in high-quality learning institutions from the primary school to university level.

Statement of Need: The constituents served by Outreach projects are living in conditions of extreme poverty. Many of the children do not have access to formal housing, electricity, or running water.  As a result, they often suffer from low self-esteem, poor academic development, and diminished life goals.  To date, the Outreach has been able to offer a private residence as a stop-gap measure to address these challenges and provide a private, healthy, safe environment for study. Creating this type of space for the children will allow them to fulfil their dreams which in most cases seem so distant and unrealistic.

Proposal: In the upcoming year, we wish to acquire the following at the Student Centre:  Extra rooms which will serve as classrooms for tutorials; a computer lab where the learners will have convenient access to internet for projects or tasks and a fully functional library for research purposes.

Target Population and Involvement: Outreach identifies children across racial boundaries that have exceptional academic ability but do not prosper due to the adverse conditions in their communities. Many children are living with their mothers or other family members and receive little or no support due to external pressures (e.g., unemployment, long work hours, etc.). Jorvan Community Outreach will manage this Outreach Student Centre but allow students to take ownership by giving them a sense of belonging and pride. This will help them to regain their self esteem, realise their dreams and prosper.
