The Amy Foundation currently operates five after school care centers located in Gugulethu, Philippi, Bontheuwel, Khayelithsha, and Athlone. Through our educational and cultural activities, we aim to unlock the children’s creative talent, cultivate their intellectual interests, and strengthen their self-confidence in order to become South Africa’s future leaders and entrepreneurs.

Our After School Programme Locations

Gugulethu

Our Amy Foundation Afterschool Centre at Siyazingisa Primary School in Gugulethu serves an average of 250 children every afternoon through our afterschool programmes which run Monday through Thursday each week. Our learners attend our afterschool centre free of charge.

They can choose from the variety of programmes which we have on offer: marimba, traditional dance, Literacy for the Intermediate Phase, Greening and Environmental, drama, Peer Education, Foundation Phase, choir, kwaito dance, netball, soccer, hockey and cricket. Each of the classes are taught by our very dedicated and enthusiastic facilitation staff. At Siyazingisa Afterschool Centre we are very fortunate to have Uthando South Africa as one of our partners.

Uthando South Africa run tours focusing on social improvement and innovation in SA and from time-to-time bring visitors to our centre to see the work we are doing at the schools through our afterschool centre and the positive impact we are having on the community. One of our highlights for this past year was our Africa Day celebration showcase. On this special day in May of this year each of the classes at the afterschool centre prepared individual pieces to perform for their peers.

Each of the pieces celebrated various elements of African culture, from traditional dance to food. Following the performances we served a traditional African meal of samp and tripe which the kids enjoyed hugely!
