Eerste Rivier is a suburb of the city of Cape Town, in the Western Cape of South Africa. The area is about 45 km from Cape Town city centre and constitutes the eastern part of an area known as the Cape Flats. The majority of the area is economically marginalised, and poverty and unemployment levels are high, as well as gang violence and crime. The Mudita Foundation is present at two high schools in the area. We are also present in another low socio economic setting closer to the town of Somerset West.
There are a number of high schools in the Western Cape requesting our services and we are busy looking for more funding to be able to offer our service to additional schools. Learn more about how you can get involved here.
