The Mudita Foundation was founded in 2010 by Alison Carstens (educational psychologist). Carstens saw a great need to reduce substance abuse among youth in high schools in the Eerste River area.
Today the organisation provides psychological services free of charge at three high schools, two high schools in the Eerste River area and one in Somerset West. Mudita also recently opened a new office in Stellenbosch.
Mudita’s team consists of psychologists, social workers, counsellors and volunteers. The organisation also makes use of the services from several individuals and organisations, including students from various institutions, the board members, a research psychologist, a software developer and a psycho-therapist.
