Jo’s School provides a safe and nurturing learning environment for 50 Aids-affected and vulnerable 3- to 6-year-olds from the economically destitute community of Vrygrond in the Western Cape. Using Montessori teaching methods, learners are given the best possible start to their young lives through a full preschool education and introduction to practical life skills. In addition, they also receive a nutritious daily breakfast, lunch and snacks and have access to safe and stimulating after-school and holiday care.

Link2Grow supported two children, Bahle and Liyema, through an ongoing monthly donation since September 2014.
