The Anna Foundation aims to empower disadvantaged rural children with life skills and core values, building self-worth and self-responsibility. The organisation’s “3Rs programme: Reading, Running, Right-ing” is implemented during after school hours and incorporates education (literacy), sports (running, riding and sports development) and life skills programmes (presented through drama). Women and men from farming communities are trained by the Anna Foundation to run their 3R’s programme, and teenager and parent workshops are also provided. The Anna Foundation projects are currently in the municipal districts of Stellenbosch, Cape Town, Langeberg and the Overberg. The objectives of the Anna Foundation are: to address the educational and social needs of rural children and to offer these children life-long learning in order to build positive self-worth and self-respect; to train local farm women with the necessary skills in order for them to be confident in implementing programmes and managing projects; to empower parents and care givers living in rural communities in order to skill and equip them with skills to take greater responsibility for the development of their children within their home and school environment.
