Goldilocks and The Bear Foundation
2017/112190/08; 191-227NPO; PBO 930057313
This initiative was proudly founded by psychiatrist Renata Schoeman (“Goldilocks”) and entrepreneur/athlete Nic de Beer (“The Bear”) and offers South Africa’s first non-profit ADHD screening and early intervention services in underprivileged communities. #gb4adhd initially aimed to bring services to 500 children per month (of the estimated 200 000 in the Western Cape who currently have no access to such services).
Since the inception of Goldilocks and The Bear, we have now expanded our focus and services to screen for all mental health barriers to education. Although, initially only active in the Western Cape, our services will be expanding to Gauteng shortly.
Through fundraising events, donations and volunteers, the Foundation can ensure that all children with ADHD and other mental health difficulties have access to the necessary support they need to develop to their full potential.
