About LEAP 6 & Ga-Rankuwa

LEAP 6: Empowering Ga-Rankuwa's Bright Futures

In the vibrant landscape near Pretoria, Ga-Rankuwa became the chosen site for the sixth LEAP School in response to the pressing concerns voiced by the Anglican Diocese of Pretoria. The Anglican Diocese, deeply invested in the welfare of its community, raised alarm about Ga-Rankuwa’s subpar educational outcomes and the disproportionately high unemployment rates among its youth. The LEAP School in Ga-Rankuwa officially opened its doors in 2012, marking a significant step toward addressing these challenges and providing a pathway to a brighter future for the community.
