A Gift to this project is life changing. Our school is the heart of a local township in South Africa and acknowledges that the child's first six years are critical for the development of the brain, language, and their physical, social and emotional growth. Our project ensures children will have a sense of belonging and they will take pride in being apart of our program and demonstrate care, compassion and mutual respect towards themselves and each other. Our teachers are changing lives
The South African Education System is failing and there is no light in the near future. Many school across South Africa still do not have access to electricity and the local government predict it will take a minimum of 14 years for them to tackle this issue. Students often walk to school for over 1 hour each way and classrooms are overcrowded, un-safe, poorly resourced and do not provide an adequate education to train future minds to tackle the global issues. The system is failing.
Our local school is registered as a non profit and provides children with a safe and nurturing education full of rich opportunities to learn. We provide a diverse, multicultural and non-discriminating approach, where differing needs, cultures and abilities are respected and valued within inclusive learning environments. Accessing different funding opportunities and gifts from our supporters we are able to provide early childhood development lessons at the school to inspire young minds early.
Working with the community and providing access to learning at an early age we active the brains on young people giving them the inspiration and motivational drive to learn more and become aware off the global issues and how they can work to build awareness and help eliminate the issues within their community.
