our mission


Unlocking learners’ potential through holistic education

MRP Foundation Schools is a holistic education model focused on school leadership and child development where children can unlock their talents and develop them through quality education, technology-based learning, physical education and the creative arts.

Many schools in South Africa, particularly those in low-income communities, face challenges such as a shortage of resources, skilled educators, good management and the active involvement of parents. Through involving all key players, including school leadership and management, educators, parents, the community and learners of each school, the programme aims to sustainably transform schools, reshape their educational environment and ultimately improve learner performance.

Our education programme is active in selected primary schools and high schools across South Africa. Three school clusters (16 schools) benefit from our holistic schools model and 63 schools enjoy the physical education component only of the schools programme. We also believe that Early Childhood Development is key for preparing children for a successful future so we've invested into 31 Early Childhood Development centres in the Hammersdale community of KwaZulu-Natal.
