The Learning Trust

Beyond the classroom

The Learning Trust believes that by providing safe and enriching learning environments through after school programmes, we help South Africa’s youth succeed in school.


We are calling on all After School organisations in South Africa to join us by participating in the global Lights On campaign this October! The campaign is aimed at increasing awareness of the After School sector and its impact on learner outcomes and broader education as a whole. 

Lights On Afterschool is an annual international campaign that was launched by the Afterschool Alliance (U.S.) in October 2000. Lights On brings awareness to the importance of After School programmes, drawing attention to the many ways the programmes support learners by offering them opportunities to learn new things, improve their academic performance, and unlock their potential.
