Giflo chooses to support Community Keepers, a charitable organisation based in Stellenbosch that aims to improve the social and emotional well-being of learners by creating supportive school communities where learning and development can prosper.
The Community Keepers programme and service is different from most community initiatives in the sense that the services are provided by qualified professionals, including counsellors, psychologists and social workers. All school-based services are implemented in partnership with learners, educators and parents/guardians to ensure that activities remain relevant to the communities in question and all role-players are equipped to participate and maintain programmes in the long run. This includes professional support and development programmes for learners and educators, as well as various parenting initiatives.
By caring for the social and emotional well-being of learners, Community Keepers also contribute towards their educational development in a bid to address poverty and reduce inequality in South Africa.
