After the success of "Help South African children achieve in Maths" GlobalGiving Project we are scaling this Project to support more learners. Education is the key to break the poverty cycle for children from underserved communities. In South Africa only 35% of learners age 12-13 pass Maths. We use a per-child, online Maths program to promote learning & to track children's progress from these challenged communities. This individualised approach allows teachers to provide support to each child.
Maths is a gateway subject that provides learners a chance to access a better quality of life and create opportunities. Post apartheid South Africa is still having to address the huge inequalities between communities. Quality education for ALL with a strong Maths foundation is a key to this. Many Primary schools have classes of 45 -60+ learners. In this environment, learners can struggle to get the individual feedback and support needed to succeed in Maths.
Schools need support to raise their achievement in Maths. We are implementing a comprehensive Maths development program that integrates online per-child activities & assessments, teacher support, per-child progress analysis & targeted per-child support. Children complete online Maths exercises on a weekly basis & get immediate feedback. This feedback motivates children to learn & improve their results. These online assessed activities allow teachers to effectively monitor & support each child.
Evaluations of this Project have already shown that learners have increased in confidence and attainment in Maths. Stronger Maths foundational skills impact learners as they progress with their education beyond the life of this Project. There are between 300 - 650 learners in every new school we are able to support. We are now supporting 530 schools in partnership with the Local Education Department. Through your support we can support learners in even more schools...
