Challenge

Early childhood teachers in townships are often lacking in the necessary education and skills to provide much more than a custodial care service for the children of working parents. The "teachers" are passionate and keen, but need training to help them understand how to apply theory learnt at college in the classroom. They also don't have the funds to buy resources to be able to engage children with stimulating learning activities that will meaningfully help them on their educational journey.

Solution

Starting Chance provides practical skills transfer to unlock the potential of these amazing women who are so committed to making a difference in children's lives. We do this through regular face-to-face on site mentoring and coaching in the classroom and through specially designed, group workshops aimed at teachers for specific age groups. As teachers are up-skilled we also improve learning environments by providing educational resources which supplement the use of recycled materials.

Long-Term Impact

Upskilling early childhood teachers increases each child's opportunity to break the education poverty trap by giving children the starting chance they desperately needed to unlock a different future for them as individuals, their families, and their communities. Upskilling early childhood principals and teachers also improves the sustainability of women entrepreneurs and increases the positive impact they have in their communities, whilst enabling realis their own potential and self-efficacy.
