Molo Mhlaba 2019 Success

Molo Mhlaba Schools lauched the Astronomy Molo Mhlaba Outreach project to popularise astronomy as a science and career option for learners in Khayelitsha's primary and high schools. We launched the Astronomy Academy in April 2019 and the programme has reached over 250 learners, won IUA100 Women & Girls in Astronomy and presented in Tokyo, Japan.

Your contribution has also enabled us to impact girls and women in the following ways:

  • 38 570 meals (breakfast and lunch) were served at Molo Mhlaba School,
  • Grew our learners from 38 girls in 2018 to 95 girls enroled at Molo Mhlaba in 2019,
  • We added 1 928 hours of additional schooling hours for girls at Molo Mhlaba in 2019,
  • Our Molo Mhlaba Outreach impact grew from 400 girls in 2018 to reach 500 girls with afterschool clubs in astronomy, lifeskills, I am Science and computer programming in 2019,
  • Grew from 16 employment opportunities created to 21 employment opportunities for women in 2019.

As we end off the year, we are excited to looking at 2020 and our plans to grow from one campus to 10 schools by 2028. This growth will enable us to ensure that girls living in underserved communities have access to safe, affordable, qaulity, education in their communities in and outside of Molo Mhlaba Schools.

Our plans for 2020 include the growth of our Astronomy Academy and Clubs from 6 site schools to a further deepening of our work with our existing schools and ensuring that every learner in the clubs and partner schools experiences astronomy and the careers opportunities available. Moreover, we have partnered with Ikapa Dance Theatre to offer 2 dance classes to learners each week at Molo Mhlaba School as we continue to grow our arts and culture department in the new year. ActivateHer continues to be a sports and recreation partner and we look forward to new and exciting programmes with them in 2020.

 

Thank you to our supporters, friends and community for helping make sure that we can grow our impact and put girls first.
