Summary

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.

Challenge

Learners from the Primary Schools supported by this Project come from previously disadvantaged, lower socio-economic communities. Children can face daily challenges caused poverty, substance abuse, gangsterism & crime. These children need a quality education to realise their potential. We want to give these children a realistic chance to realise their full potential and break this poverty cycle by providing them with a strong foundation in Maths.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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 Education Department. Through your support we can support learners in even more schools...
