We've recently had the pleasure in dealing with an organisation called Bottomup.
Helene Rousseau from Bottomup created a Soft Cover Photo Book with pictures taken during the year of 2011 at the schools where they are involved. RapidStudio printed the copies for them at no charge to show our appreciation for the commendable work they do with the learners in our schools. Click here to view the photo book.
Read on to find out a little more about the organisation, the work they do and how you could get involved.
"To instill a sense of pride, belonging and identity within learners at existing disadvantaged primary schools and to empower them with foundational skills for a better future."
They are involved with many projects at a couple of primary schools - including Physical Education, Life Orientation, Creative Arts, Literacy Support and Personal Development. Browsing through their website or talking to one of the people involved, makes you excited and hopeful for the future of this country. The work they do with these children is absolutely phenomenal.
The schools they are involved at include the following:
Perivale Primary School
Constantia Primary School
Parkwood Primary School
Lotus River Primary School
If you would like to get involved, here is how you can help.
They are constantly looking for tutors to assist them with this great task they have taken on of instilling pride, belonging and identity within these learners. Become a tutor (Maths/English literacy Grade 1-7) or volunteer your skills (Public Relations / Event Planning etc.) and be part of this wonderful initiative.
Purchase a Bottomup T-Shirt or Hoodie from them or simply make a donation by paying a sum into their bank account.
