img_2724The 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.
