JumpStart was founded in 2010 to address the gaps in Basic Education to help bridge the divide between under qualified school leavers, tertiary education and ultimately the economy. Our three keys of Educate - Qualify - Employ encapsulate this driver. We focus on Primary School mathematics, technology and literacy.
WHERE WE ARE
From early pilots in 2009 the Foundation has grown to reach 20,000 students across 46+ government schools in four provinces.
We have received R30m funding from the likes of Sasol, Standard Bank, the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation and Brombacher & Associates.
On the back of definitive clinical shifts in improved student and teacher mathematical performance we have extended grants until 2020.
We are Non-Profit Community Based Organisation registered under South African law with all due diligence and compliance with annual audits since inception.
