ABOUT GOEDGEDACHT TRUST

Managed by a board of trustees, the Goedgedacht Trust was established in 1993 to contribute to the transformation of disadvantaged rural communities in the West Coast region of the Western Cape. To meet the challenges faced by rural communities, the Trust developed and implemented a creative and sustainable flagship, Path Onto Prosperity (POP) Program, catering to the needs of children at different stages of their lives, starting with the first 1 000 days until adulthood.
