Amy Foundation formerly Amy Biehl Foundation

Operating four times a week, the kids are each provided with a sandwich and a cool drink every day, rare luxuries for the little ones. Extramural activities include vital HIV/AIDS peer education, literacy, creative arts, sport, computer literacy, drama and environmental awareness. Ultimately, the organisation wishes to help develop self-confidence and encourages them to take identities as future leaders, intellectuals and entrepreneurs. It currently operates five centres in Gugulethu, Philippi, Bonteheuwel, Khayelitsha and Athlone.
