Education: The key to a future

EDUCATION: THE KEY TO A FUTURE

We have worked in the area for long enough to recognise that the ONLY way out of this dire poverty is education. We acknowledge that the social circumstances of many learners are not conducive to studying, but we cannot give up on these children getting an education.

We are so excited to announce that we have launched a brilliant pilot project in January 2019 which aims at keeping children in school beyond grade 10, changing the way they feel about themselves, and improving maths marks too. Grade 8 pupils of Sekano Ntoane Secondary School will attend extra lessons every Saturday morning where tutors trained by Jade Education will revisit the core building blocks/foundations of maths. Famsa (Family Life Centre) and two independent social workers will concurrently run psycho-social programs aimed at improving learner self esteem, personal hygiene, and emotional well being.

We have a good track record of assisting schools in the area. In 2018 we these programs at various schools in the area:

  • Sanitary pad handouts for the entire year to almost 300 girls at Mapetla High School.
  • Washable sanitary pads to over 50 girls at Protea South Primary School.
  • Menstrual cups to over 50 girls at Sekano Ntoane Secondary School.
  • Over 500 pairs of school shoes and socks handed out to pupils at Khotso Primary School, Sedibathuto High Primary School, Mapetla High School and Megatong Primary School .
  • Select items of school uniform for desperate children
  • Saturday morning extra maths lessons at Mapetla High School

OUR IMPACT:

  • R48000 worth of sanitary pads, as well as menstrual cup handout, washable sanitary towels handout
  • R180000 for extra maths tutoring
  • R100000 for school shoes
  • We have positively impacted on the morale of all involved: learners, schools, parents/caregivers, teachers, and Soweto Department of Education.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

The balance of nutritional ePap was handed to a rural hospital in Northern KZN 2 weeks ago, I wanted it to go to cerebral palsy children. This hospital is on the Mozambican border, mothers who are desperate climb through the fence from Mozam with children who are very ill, or profoundly brain damaged. They live in abject poverty here in SA, just so that their child can get some sort of medical care and therapy. These are the children I chose to get a nutritional supplement. Not that the SA mothers have it any easier, of course their children will eat as well. The intention was for those brave and anonymous children (who starve, yet live on love). At least those children with broken bodies will have some nourishment. ...

We dropped off 5 × 25kg bags of ePap leftover from our Noah Project, in Northern KZN at Manguzi Hospital (beautiful rural hospital on Mozam border) Dropped off clothes and some walking sticks too, they will be handed out to children with disabities. We could never visit the area without making a drop off at the hospital. ...
