The Click Foundation
The Foundation believes that, through effective implementation technology can shift the paradigm and make a significant impact in an efficient, cost effective and scalable manner. It uses technology in education to pursue outcomes-based interventions. The primary project is the implementation of a foundation phase online English literacy programme. It provides individualized, self-paced learning that is interactive and fun and has delivered significant improvements in results.
The target group is young learners in Grade R – 3 in our primary schools. They operate in various environments across South Africa and have over 50 000 learners on the programme.
The foundation is all about changing lives for the young learners of South Africa. Supporting them on their journey and creating lifelong learners through their ability to read and use technology.
Join us in visiting one of the centres during your stay – more details can be obtained from one of the managers on duty.
Since 2011, Ellerman House has opened its doors to the annual charity auction and party, Ellerman House ArtAngels, for the benefit of the Click Foundation.
To date the ArtAngels events have raised over R14 million for education in South Africa. The events include a limited auction of fine art pieces kindly donated by some of South Africa’s best artists, the sale of raffle tickets, amazing prizes and fantastic wine, food and entertainment. The proceeds of the charity event are used to buy computers and expand the reach of the Click Foundation in the environments in which they operate. Events are held in Johannesburg, Cape Town and London.
It all started when five individuals in their 50’s pooled their considerable skills and experience to create innovative, world-class conservation projects in diverse and threatened habitats throughout Africa. Paul Harris, owner of Ellerman House is one of the five individuals and we work closely with Great Plains Conservation, in any areas possible. Their mission is to find the right formula of conservation, communities and commerce that would make a lasting, sustainable difference to the world’s iconic wildlife and wildernesses.
The model takes stressed and threatened environments, surrounds them with compassionate protection and intelligent, sustainable management, and funds them with sensitive, low-volume, low-impact, tourism. Communities are an intrinsic part of this model and benefit directly from it. The final piece of the puzzle is the guests, our clients – who pay to visit the camps we create, and through doing so, become our valued partners and agents of positive change.
