The Leeu Collection has partnered with non-profit Hope Through Action to create a new learning centre in Franschhoek. The Leeu Learning Centre, which launched on the 1st of February, gives the area’s youth access to free quality online education and resources. It’s based at the Franschhoek Valley Community Sports Centre, which offers sports, leadership and life skills training, and was established by Hope Through Action
The Learning Centre offers up-to-date equipment and professional support in a welcoming environment, and is open between 09h00 and 19h00 every week day. The facilities include a dozen computers with internet access, printing and photocopying equipment, school curriculum material, newspapers and magazine, as well as fictional titles for children and adults.
The facilities are available for adults in the morning, while the afternoon programmes focus on school children and homework. Subject specific tutors as well as computer assistance is available to help with assignments and classes, and educational film screenings will also be offered.
Analjit Singh (known as BAS), Founder of the Leeu Collection sums up the project’s overall philosophy simply and succinctly: “Learning and education are the keys to personal development. In training ourselves to become worthy citizens at home, at work, or anywhere we contribute toward building our society. I wish the programme every success!”
