The Claude Leon Foundation


Goedgedacht is a South African rural project situated in the Western Cape 87 Kilometres northwest of Cape Town. It seeks to help rural children out of deep and entrenched poverty. At present Goedgedacht’s Path out of Poverty (POP) programmes are working in eighteen rural villages in the Western Cape.


A unique characteristic of the work of Goedgedacht has been its determination to make their development programmes self-sustainable in the long term. Over the past 15 years the Claude Leon Foundation has supported the Goedgedacht programme in several ways – by assisting with the building of a dam, improving literacy for farm workers, ensuring safe transport for children, the planting olive groves and upgrading of olive plant equipment - all of which strengthen the self-sustainability of this important work.
