Transforming Communities through Education

Lifting Dreams is a registered non-profit company which specialises in community upliftment through educational support in underprivileged schools and communities. 

We currently run a weekly academic programme in Soweto, Mamelodi, and Potchefstroom. Our education program is facilitated by both contract tutors, and an amazing team of volunteers to help children excel at various academic levels.

Get Involved

We love our country and the beautiful people who live here. Get involved as an individual, an organisation, a church, a family unit, or circle of friends. We have made so much progress on our various campuses with more community upliftment planned for the future. For this we need YOU!

— Volunteer

We are always looking for individuals to join the programme as teachers. If you don’t quite see yourself as a teacher, but would like to contribute your unique talents in a different way, we’d love to hear from you.
