About Us.

Who We Are

We are a national initiative that strives to empower children and adolescents by providing them with the necessary support to overcome the unique challenges they face in today’s world.


JESSICA MATHESON FOUNDATION

The Jessica Matheson Foundation is a Non-Government Organisation which is a one of a kind as it focusses on the alleviation of depression and drugs abuse in South Africa as well as the Southern African Development Community at large. We specialise in providing Social Services such as providing Social Workers, Councillors in schools as well as communities that are in need. Furthermore, we do awareness campaigns, road shows and mentoring.   

Our Mission is to help one pupil at a time by putting a social worker or a councillor in every school. Helping one person at a time by providing easily available counselling services to young people and also providing a help desk as well as a Help APP for our services

The Jessica Matheson Foundation was founded in Memory of Jessica Matheson who suffered from depression and the depression caused her to take her own life. As we remember Jessica, we are reminded to assist one pupil at a time until we achieve our goal of putting a social worker or counsellor in every school.
