One hundred under-resourced schools in the Western Cape have now received purpose-designed and constructed science learning centres in a programme started 12 years ago as a project by leading science educationist Professor Shaheed Hartley, the Director of Advancing Knowledge NPC.
When, 18 years ago, Garden Cities (NPC) (RF) established the Archway Foundation, its objective was to redress inequalities for learners in the Western Cape, where historic disparities still exist in the provision of facilities to many hundreds of under-resourced schools.
Bullying is an ongoing and deliberate misuse of power in relationships, through repeated verbal, physical and/or social behaviour that intends to cause physical, social and/or psychological harm.

The Garden Cities Archway Foundation, established 16 years ago to alleviate the enormous shortfall of school halls in the Western Cape, also collaborates with a UWC programme aimed at redressing the low levels of science and maths skills.
It’s more urgent than ever for the private sector to help alleviate the enormous shortfall in essential education facilities. Government is not keeping up with the existing and increasing needs of schools. Millions of children are not getting what they need for a comprehensive education.
