Learning on tablets
In order to cover all the children under its care, Thabang has expanded on its academic programmes,
Not only do the children who are stronger academically, receive attention, but all the children receive special programmes designed to empower each of them.
Using interactive educational programmes on tablets, has prooved to be very beneficial in capturing the attention of children who do not enjoy formal learning. We hope to soon be able to take this technology to the informal settlement of Smasher Block as well.
Twice a month on Saturdays, extra lessons are provided at Smasher Block for all the Drop in Centre children. The children are eager to attend and learn and help each other. They also learn about gardening with vegetables while helping in the Centre's garden.
Thabang continues to look for programmes to develop all of its children in a holistic manner. Much attention is also given to the development of arts and culture through opportunities to express themselves via music and art.
Topping all of this, is the continuous input of life skills done by all stff concerned, in order to 'grow' our children to be respectful and positive community members.
