In 2002 The LifeMatters Foundation was established by the Meadowridge Baptist Church (now Connect Church). It has grown into a whole network of programmes to serve disadvantaged and at-risk Primary School learners. They focus on both academic and life skills development.
LifeMatters Academic Portfolio
Under the Academic Portfolio, they have two programmes that they run. The first is a literacy programme which they run at five underprivileged schools. The second is a numeracy programme. This programme helps to build a solid foundation of number concepts to improve the mathematical outcome for learners.
LifeMatters LifeSkills Portfolio
The LifeSkills Portfolio consists of counseling, mentoring, camps and teenage awareness programmes. These programmes are all structured to equip children to face the different challenges that they encounter on a daily basis.
In order to make all of this possible on a daily basis, the LifeMatters foundation is reliant on their amazing volunteers, interns, and staff. They rely on donations to keep making a difference in the lives of these vulnerable children.
Shutterway is proud to be a supporter of the LifeMatters Foundation and we believe that giving something back to society can make a big difference in the lives of those less fortunate. We have embraced transactional giving and corporate social responsibility in our company ethos.
