Sharing the learning

Staffed by a diverse group of tutors from all over Africa, the LEAP Learning Centre is teaching critical skills to a generation of future LEAP students and is also helping them understand more about tolerance and hope.


Fixing a broken system

Johnny Copelyn and HCI are major supporters of LEAP’s work, funding LEAP 2 and its engagement with partner schools Herzlia United and Litha Primary in Gugulethu.


Valuing education

The inequity in South Africa’s education system should be declared a national emergency because by allowing the situation to continue as it is, we perpetuate the abhorrent impact of apartheid and colonialism.
