About Us

Who We Are?

Barefoot Edu Foundation is a non-profit organisation committed to transforming schools into stimulating learning environments, contextualised for under-resourced communities. We do this by building the leadership capacity of principals, and students so that their voice, values, and goals shape education at the grassroots. With our support, they lead change and rapidly improve education and their school as a whole.
