The Kusasa Project, Franschhoek


The Kusasa Project was founded in 2006 by Dave Riordan and Doug Gurr, initially to facilitate reading and recreational sports’ activities one day a week at a deprived school in the informal settlement outside of Franschhoek.

The Kusasa Project seeks to address the educational, nutritional and holistic needs of disadvantaged children from the farms and informal settlements of the Cape Winelands. Through daily interaction, we provide support, encouragement and the environment to learn in a safe, stimulating setting. Our guiding philosophy is that economic challenges, historic disadvantage, race, colour or language should not be a barrier to a brighter future. We approach each day with a firm view that “It’s all about the kids!”
