Children and Communites in Cape Town

Why we need your help

Summary

South Africa has one of the world's worst education systems with problems dating back to the apartheid. Our educational programs work alongside partner organisations in communities outside of Cape Town to provide quality education to young people. Through quality education, we aim to increase job prospects and opportunities within the community which in-turn will have a positive impact on overall quality of life.

Challenge

Nomzamo still faces the harsh conditions of inequality and many areas are effected by water pollution due to poor sanitation and substandard housing conditions. These overpopulated communities with poor access to resources also face challenges when it comes to Education. Poor infrastructure, sub-standard teaching quality and high-drop out rates have resulted in South African schools being declared as among the most inept in the world.

Solution

Our educational program adopts a one-on-one teaching style with primary school students which helps support the students learning with the aim of improving both their math and reading skills. We use group based learning with preschool students to develop their language, motor and social skills. Our physical education program helps encourage students to participate in exercise, healthy eating and in general encourages a healthy lifestyle.

Long-Term Impact

At the root of education, we hope to improve students level of English but also their confidence and self-esteem. Enabling students to successfully graduate from High School which will cause a ripple effect in the community. Access to quality education helps creates greater job opportunities which in turn has a positive impact on employment rates and general health and living standards. By assisting, we hope to increase young people's prospects of a brighter future and a sustainable community.

I stayed with GVI for 6 weeks in March and I am devastated to hear about these fires. I?m constantly thinking about the children I worked with in Nomzamo. My heart goes out to all of the people in the community.
