Golang Education Outreach was established in 2002 with a vision to uplift and enhance the educational journeys of under-privileged and vulnerable children. The Outreach is based in the Emthonjeni Community Centre in Honeydew, mainly serving the people living in the informal settlement of Zandspruit.
Golang Education Outreach achieves this vision most effectively by involving ourselves in children’s lives, starting at an early age. We have succeeded in our mission to run a Preschool with 60 children from ages 3 – 6; an Aftercare Centre catering for 200 Primary School children; and a Youth Program for 40 – 50 High-Schoolers.
