Philosophy of Freewalker Foundation
South Africa is a Nation healing from its past struggles. This has left behind poverty stricken areas that have been forgotten, full of people with hope and desire for a better future; however, means to achieve their dreams are limited. Education is the key in developing children, communities and countries. Education is the foundation of a great Nation, and without it, Nations become failed States. The vacuum being diagnosed needs a catalyst to set on fire the great need for education and sustainability within a country, and the assistance to do so. Freewalker creates a bridge between passionate people who want to help and the people who are in need. By educating young minds and instilling a more sustainable perspective on life, Freewalker hopes to encourage and create solutions to enhance the wellbeing of this country’s people and wildlife. Creating an opportunity for volunteers will not only positively influence lives that they touch, but with sustainable solutions, the effects of their input will last for generations to come.
