The Ugly Truth

In Coffee Bay:

  • Less than 10% of children in our area have access to early childhood programmes.
  • Over 75% of the community here are unemployed.
  • Less than 10% of high school students complete their education to matriculate.


In South Africa:

  • At Grade 4, over 80% of South African children cannot read for comprehension.
