The Grade 1 Foundation (G1F) aims to provide registered beneficiaries with the opportunity to access basic resources for their 6 or 7 year old child that will be starting Grade 1. These resources include school supplies and school clothes.

The first day of school is filled with excitement and great hope for many children who are beginning Grade 1, as this is their very first experience of school. Our main purpose at G1F is to offer our support and foster a 12-month partnership with parents or guardians to encourage a situation whereby children succeed in attaining the best possible result and setting the highest standard.


G1F will achieve its goal by:

  • enrolling one child per community, across 12 different communities.

  • provide school supplies and school clothes to children part of G1F

  • maintain a feedback system to monitor each G1F-child’s academic progress during that 12-month agreement.
