Schools


The decision to partner with a school is always based on a request from the community and enabled through the funding partner. Our teams operate in geographic clusters for practical reasons and the support of colleagues, specialists and supervisors requires that new schools are on-boarded into an existing cluster or to form a new cluster. Outliers are high risk as they fall outside of the support structure that is core to our philosophy – for this reason, we have several schools on our waiting list, pending cluster funding.

Before Community Keepers partners with a school we go through a process of consultation and engage with school management, educators, funders and parents regarding the resources and needs of the school and the community.

Being school-based, all our services are implemented in partnership with learners, educators and parents or guardians.  This ensures that our activities are relevant to the specific communities and that community members are the drivers of change, with us contributing resources as the invited guest.

Our collective reach through these partner schools is 24 523 learners.
