Community Based Organisations

We work mainly in the deeply rural Eastern Cape area around Matatiele. Each community based organisation has a community care centre, organic food garden, chicken coops, a playground for the children and on-going developments to ensure sustainability.

The Rural Education Access Programme (REAP) assists students from poor rural areas across all 9 provinces of South Africa. Each year, thousands of young South Africans from poor rural areas find themselves trapped in a cycle of unemployment and poverty as they successfully complete their schooling but are limited from going any further, due to a lack of information, career guidance, opportunities and funding. The participation rate in tertiary education for black and coloured young people aged 20-24 is still only 12%. For every 3 black students that commence a tertiary education course in South Africa, only one ever completes. The problem is even worse for students from rural areas. ASAP identifies promising students and helps them transition to tertiary education through a partnership with REAP. We provide career guidance and counselling in the years leading up to their application and support and assistance once they've been accepted on a preliminary basis to aid them in achieving their goals of accessing tertiary education.
We currently have 6 students in the process and ASAP facilitator Mfundo was hands on with the students today as he helped them with their computer work. Our approach to development and youth development is supportive and hands on for years as communities and children require on-going support to reach their goals.

Women's Day is often celebrated by treating Mom to breakfast in bed or a box of chocolates, the better to resume her duties refreshed and motivated by having been appreciated twice a year. Those ads not only commercially exploit a patriarchal notion of womanhood, but they actively undermine the point of Women's Day/Month: to emancipate women and to smash the shackles of patriarchy.
We look forward to a time when there no longer will be a need for a month to advocate for the emancipation of women and smashing of the patriarchal shackles because these objectives are met.
Help us have the voices of the deeply rural women of Matatiele be heard: at imbizos, by local government and those who can and should support them in their work of improving the lives of their children. We stand with them and fight for them to be heard, and to have their efforts recognised and validated within their communities. To find out how to help, email info@africansolutions.org or visit our website to make a donation.

The children of rural Pontseng encounter freezing weather in Winter, with an icy wind blowing through the village from the snow capped Lesotho mountains. For immune compromised children this can prove massively problematic to their health and well-being. The most vulnerable do not have warm blankets and mattresses to ensure their warmth, comfort and security at night in a one room hut. We provide blankets and mattresses to those who are in the most dire need after a thorough household and income assessment. The gift is met with much joy and appreciation and we rest easy knowing the children's quality of life has been improved and there is one less factor to depress their immunity. ... See MoreSee Less
