The Global Challenge 


Birdies 2 Earn Donation Campaign

Are you ready to Tee-Up for a Hand-Up?

Help us raise funds to up-skill local communities across the Cape Whale Coast in South Africa, by supporting this initiative, which is allied to the inaugural Global Golf Challenge.


Learn to Earn is the beneficiary for the Global Golf Challenge Charity Invitational, which will take place at Hermanus Golf Club from 24 – 26 February 2017.  10 professional women golfers from the Southern Hemisphere will compete against their Northern Hemisphere counterparts for honours, but mostly, for the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for Learn to Earn’s various programmes. Find out more about this world-first event - the Global Golf Challenge here. 

All monies raised from this campaign will help us skill unemployed people, especially women, with the market related skills need to get a hand-up - not a hand-out, and restore their dignity by giving them the ability to earn an income and improve their and their families lives.

How to donate?

It’s easy… we believe that the estimated number of Birdies that will be made during the entire tournament will be in the region of 80 – 120.  All you have to do is select which band (below) you believe will be the most accurate and donate. There is also have the option of selecting your own amount.

Donations are deducted in your local currency (Rands, Dollars, Euros etc)

I think the tournament will generate the following number of Birdies:
0 - 90 Birdies            I hereby donate 20.00
91 - 99 Birdies          I hereby donate 50.00
100 - 109 Birdies     I hereby donate 100.00
110 + Birdies            I hereby donate 200.00
Own amount

Thank you for your support.

Learn to Earn Mobile Academy

                                                             LtE Mobile Training

The Learn to Earn Mobile Academy is an extension of the Learn to Earn Association and seeks to replicate the LtE model through an approach that is demand driven, contextually relevant, efficient and mobile based.

Programmes and Projects designed and implemented by the Learn to Earn Mobile Academy are innovative and geared towards rebuilding human dignity and holistically addressing unemployment and issues of injustice. Employment in the formal economy or active entrepreneurship is a result of our Mobile Training interventions - individuals and groups are empowered, taking ownership of the requisite knowledge, skills and attitudes to provide for themselves and their families. Because programmes are tailored to address the issues relevant to each context – projects are viewed as a collaborative partnership and not a service.
