Sewing lessons for little hands!
Dear Friend of the Ibhabhathane,
Wow, we are super excited! Obtaining government training for our Early Childhood Development workers has been a huge stumbling block. We therefore started investigating in alternative training possibilities as training is essential to ensure that our children get the best quality care during this critical window period of human development. Especially in the poorest of areas where education is so neglected and the evils of poverty persists to prevail in its on-going-backwards journey.
After some research and implementing some of the Montessori ideas it was just astounding to see how our children’s concentration improved, fine motor co-ordination developed while learning practical life skills and how positively the little ones respond to the well-organised and self-regulating activities.
Training though, is very expensive and we will call upon all possible support we can, to assist us in attaining our goal. We do realise that current economic times are tough and how carefully resources must be allocated to be effective. We have constructed a list, in order to assist you to contribute to our project, should you wish to do so, by means that will be affordable and doable for you.
Montessori Training, cost per child : $150
Montessori Educational Construction Material : $50
Montessori Sensory and Real Life Material : $20
Montessori Literacy Material: : $20
Seeds for flower, herb and veggie garden : $10
Your assistance and support will make an enormous difference to a little child's life. Help us to make a difference that will have a positive impact for a life time! We look forward to your positive reply and thank you for the time you took to consider our project.
