OUR PURPOSE

Strong Schools Community Collaborative is a For Purpose Organisation (Non-Profit Company), where we develop and support sustainable change in under-resourced schools.

Our aim is to pursue and to deliver quality functioning solutions for schools in order to become institutions of hope that inspire healthy, wholesome and hopeful futures for our youth and society.

We develop and empower the schools’ leadership (stronger roots) to help build effective and efficient schools in its mandate of education (better fruits).

Strong Schools facilitates sustainable organisational change management interventions in under-resourced government schools situated in the Helderberg Basin, Western Cape. We build on and support the strategic partnership that Camino Consulting has established with the WCED and 13 schools since 2016.

THE IMPACT WE ENVISION

We want to see the rise of Strong Schools that can bring sustainable change to their immediate communities and the people they represent. 

Schools should be institutions of hope, hubs of opportunity, places of belonging, and vehicles of transformation and growth to their surrounding communities.

We want our schools to produce good fruit like:

  • quality education
  • learners with access to possibilities and opportunities for their futures
  • healthy and wholesome learning environments
  • capable and inspired staff
  • practical and safe facilities
  • values that can transform lives and circumstances

The stronger the roots, the higher and better the trees can grow. A school’s roots are the support structures and the conduits that allow life to flow to the tree.

A school’s community can empower its school with support, investment, and involvement. In return, a strong school can transform its society by offering hope for the future.
