Our schools

Our schools become like family to us and are involved in the process from start to finish. It is our greatest joy to unlock doors of opportunity and knowledge through the Intersen libraries we establish and Foundation Phase book corners we set up.

Working together

The LEARN Project is a collective. It exists because of incredible partnerships between schools, companies, individuals and volunteers, all who give of themselves to make life better for others. Together we are on a journey of educating our Rainbow Nation, with literacy at the forefront.

Our hope is to partner donor and beneficiary schools, so that together we grow and move forward in excellence, learning from each other and uniting our future generation of leaders.

How it works

Together we unlock doors and minds. Collaboration is key.
