The Langa Educational Assistance Programme (LEAP) was formed in 2004 and operates a network of six high schools supporting the development of critical life and academic skills in young people living in some of the poorest townships in South Africa.
Focusing on the development of the whole child, our learner-centred approach and strong emphasis on social-emotional learning belies the destructive assumption that quality education is not possible in under-resourced communities.
We believe that every child, despite their socio-economic status if given the appropriate love and support is able to become a responsible and productive citizen.
Our interventions are offered via LEAP’s programme of self-liberating learning which are implemented at our six schools in Langa, Philippi, Alexandra, Diepsloot, GaRankuwa and Jane Furse. Our consciousness education model has been designed to redress inequalities which are evident in today’s schooling system and strives for excellence at our schools. We aim to educate and empower students to be the best that they can be through an “Ubuntu” approach – I am because you are.
