Learning In Reach and Bambini Dream Foundation team up to uplift Lavender Hills

Written by: Zanele Zama

Learning In Reach will partner with the Bambini Dream Foundation to plant gardens and make eco-bricks in Lavender Hills.

Learning In Reach specialises in early childhood development. The organisation aims to empower the future generation with curiosity and a love of learning by ensuring education equality in the belief that this is the foundation for a stronger democracy.

Speaking to Bianca Resnikov on the Pippa Hudson show, Learning In Reach project director Leanne Reid explained the work they do in detail.

We have started upgrading the building and now we are starting to look at the outside and how we can upgrade and green the area outside.

Reid says all help will be appreciated.

It is open to anyone who would like to get involved and contribute.

Learning In Reach is not about giving out handouts but rather looking to engage and working with people for change.
