Sharon Dilworth founded THE WORTH FOUNDATION after noticing a need in her childhood community of Mitchell's Plain, South Africa.

 

In many cases, school children who have no school uniforms refuse to go to school. They spend their days roaming the streets and getting involved in drugs and gangs.

Sharon believes that if these children are clothed according to school dress code, they will feel confident and willing to attend school more consistently.

 

The Worth Foundation is hoping to expand in the next few years and create a food program at schools in the Western Cape to provide breakfast and a hot lunch for students from low income families.
