Good Work Foundation

The future of rural education

Rhino Africa believes that community upliftment and education are key to empowering future generations of conservationists, innovators, and leaders.
In 2009, we formed a partnership with the Good Work Foundation, a South African NGO on a mission to unleash the untapped potential of millions of people living in rural areas.
The GWF aims to provide world-class education and to lead a focused, achievable and digitally-[em]powered education model for rural Africa.
The Good Work Foundation has developed a model of locally-managed Digital Learning Campuses (or “hubs”) that improve an individual’s ability to learn and operate the 21st-century’s “languages of access”: digital, English, and self-creativity. There are four digital learning campuses currently operating in rural South Africa in the areas of Hazyview, Madlala, Londolozi, and Justicia.
The aim of each Digital Learning Campus is to: 
  1. Create an access “bridge” between high school and work, preparing rural adults for life in a global, connected world via The Bridging Academy
  2. Become a hub of digital learning for public-sector elementary schools that can outsource their digital learning to the center via The Open Learning Academy
  3. Reduce the “digital divide” by providing rural communities with the opportunity to actively participate in today’s online economy
This video illustrates the work that the GWF does.
How has Rhino Africa helped the Good Work Foundation?
  • Rhino Africa has been one of GWF’s largest corporate supporters in the form of corporate social investment since 2009. We have helped the GWF achieve the following:
  • Over 10 000 young learners are now registered in Digital Learning Centres across South Africa.
  • Rhino Africa is a founding partner of the most recent digital learning centre, Justicia Campus, which opened in March 2016
  • We provide bursary funding  for students of Madlala’s Digital Learning Centre to help them complete the ICDL course - the world's leading computer skills certification
  • Rhino Africa also helped create awareness for GWF by building a website and  providing marketing and multimedia services from our in house teams
How can you help? 
The potential of Africa’s young people is unlocked by the access they are given. This includes access to technology, access to opportunity, and access to a world-class education. The Good Work Foundation aims to raise 10 million USD and reach 100,000 learners by 2020 and YOU can be a part of this goal by making donations to the organisation in the following ways:
  • Travel with Rhino Africa. Just by booking with us, you help to support and fund the work of The Good Work Foundation
  • Extend your stay in Kruger (in South Africa) and visit one of our Digital Learning Campuses. Our Justicia and Hazyview learning centres are only a short distance from the Sabi Sand Reserve. Contact for more information.
  • Volunteer and observe these efforts first hand
  • Donate to this worthy cause
  • R8000 ($450)  will sponsor a bursary for a student for a full year.
  • R2000 ($150) will sponsor 10 primary school children to receive digital education in Mathematics, English and Life Skills for a full year.
