Foundation grows

A 15-year-old girl from Tygerdal in Goodwood is making it her mission to make a difference by encouraging the education of the youth.

Courtney Dumont, who attends Edgemead High School, chatted to the newspaper about the Faith Foundation which she founded in 2018. Through the non-profit organisation she seeks to provide learners with school stationery packs.

“The foundation started in July last year. What inspired me is that I served on my church’s leadership team at our annual holiday club and we had a local children’s home who joined us. Spending time and listening to the children’s stories is what drove me to start my foundation,” said Dumont.

“I want to give children hope and faith for a better future as I believe education is the key to success in anybody’s life.”

“The Faith Foundation has grown over the last six months by donating 10 stationery packs to a small safe house, to recently donating 100 stationery packs to a primary school.”

She said the aim of the foundation is to empower the youth with a better education because “we are the future”. “The stationery packs mean that they will not have to share crayons or pencils from one box like so many children have to do. My stationery packs empower them to complete their school tasks.”

Her mother, Zee Dumont whom she described as her ‘momager’, helps her run the foundation, including her friend, Chelsea Currie.
