Vision and Mission

Our vision is to see all young people positively contributing to society by making informed decisions that promote their own wellbeing and that of their communities, daring to dream about a different future for them and their families.

Our mission is to increase access to free, quality education through after-school programs by helping start new after-school programs and supporting ones that already exist.

How We Do This

To help 10000 students access free quality education in after-school programs by February 2019

- We train and mentor facilitators to set-up and run safe spaces for learning

- We mobilize resources to increase educational support in after-school programs

- We connect people for civil engagement to increase opportunities for students.

About

Outliers is about free education because commodified education in South Africa continues to perpetuate injustice in disadvantaged communities. Though every young person can influence positive change, the absence of access to a good education in many communities limits their capacity to develop agency and make informed decisions.

Both Heidi Segal and Laura Singh had a desire to respond to this injustice by disrupting the system and providing free quality education in disadvantaged communities. In 2009, they started their first after-school program, drawing on their social connections to facilitate the space. In 2014, they founded Outliers to support the growing number of after-school programs in their network.

"At Outliers, we are committed to helping our partners fulfil their visions by supporting them as best we can. We firmly believe that each of our partners knows what works best in their context and our support of them is guided by their expressed needs. Outliers relies heavily on civil society to meet the needs of our partners. We look forward to hearing from you as you join the movement to equal access to education for all."
