Challenge

The community of Mankosi, is located in the rural area of the former Transkei, South Africa. The youth is suffering from poor education through ill-equipped and understaffed schools. The classrooms are overcrowded and the drop out rate is 90%. Despairingly high unemployment rate and minimal job opportunity leads to most people living under the poverty line. Therefore hunger is prevalent.

Solution

The Education center hosts quality Early Childhood Development classes for 3-6 year old kids to lay a strong foundation of basic literacy and numeracy. The After-school enrichment program for children age 7-16 teaches extra Math, English and computer classes to improve these necessary skills. The scholarship program sends learners to complete their grade 10-12 to good boarding schools in the cities and provides tertiary education there after.

Long-Term Impact

The Education Center will teach previously disadvantaged children to grow up to be empowered, independent citizens and become breadwinners for their families to lead the way out of poverty.
