"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
  Nelson Mandela


For the last seven years, Bright Start has been providing access to quality education to children from three upwards, and training workshops to adults, from the historically disadvantaged communities of Imizamo Yethu and Hangberg in Hout Bay. The support offered to the children extends beyond school fees and includes a dedicated mentor working closely with the child and family, building capacity and offering guidance. Our adult workshops offer educational and interactive training, providing under educated adults and youth with requisite knowledge that is otherwise inaccessible.
