Upskilling South Africa's young people

What an amazing experience! Clients of ours, Zoe and Eric, VERY generously gave up a morning of their trip to South Africa to visit the school we sponsor in the Bo Kaap, St. Pauls.

Eric is an entomologist and also a CG animator. He created a whole presentation of his work to show the Grade 7 class and then showed them in real time how to sculpt and create an insect in the CG programme.

But that wasn't all: when he got home, he built a special You Tube video for the children to use in their own time, with links to his site and free-to-use CG sites. Talk about above and beyond!

This kind of exposure to professionals has been shown time and again to be one of the key differences between advantaged children and disadvantaged children. We are so very grateful to Zoe and Eric for giving up their time.

If you're visiting this part of the world, let us know if you'd be interested in talking to the learners at one of our sponsored schools - it's potentially a life-changing experience both for you and for them.

Ethos

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
