Our commitment to social change

At Infinity Learning, we share a deep commitment to education, literacy and social change. As a result, our team run the following non-profit initiatives:

The Bookshelf Project

The Bookshelf Project was born out of conversations with staff at children’s centres and schools in underprivileged areas, when it became clear to us that limited access to books was one of the main barriers to literacy improvement. We began to build bookshelves – 1.8 meters wide and 1.5 meters high – and fill them with books, including encyclopaedia, dictionaries, study guides, text books, story books, and picture books. All our books are kindly donated by Rotary clubs, bookshops, schools, and individuals who support the goals of The Bookshelf Project.

The vision of the project is to facilitate a love of reading, to make a resource available to children who would not do not have access to books, and to empower these children with skills and confidence that will assist them in their lives and academic careers. We partner with centres and schools who have a need for books, and also the commitment to run related reading groups and homework sessions for the children they work with.

The Educational Bursary Fund
The founder of Infinity Learning, Chris Dykes, is trustee for an educational bursary fund that supports 27 very disadvantaged children in the Johannesburg area. The core funding was made available by IPL, and funds are disbursed according to each child’s educational needs, on the basis of regular conversations and meetings with the children and their guardians. All of these children face serious obstacles to their education, including lacking basic needs such as food, transport fees, clothing and study materials. In many cases, the Fund has made the difference between the child continuing to attend school, and dropping out.

In future, the Fund will look for individuals to become permanent donors, so that these children and others can continue to receive support for their secondary and tertiary education.
