Poverty, HIV-Aids, broken families, inadequate housing and school facilities, and other basic necessities are just some of the barriers that millions of South African children face daily. Education is a powerful vehicle that can transform societies and break cycles of disease and poverty. Community support and youth development can empower people so that they can live healthier and more prosperous lives where one can make their own choices about their futures.
