Silicon Cape is raising funds this Mandela Day 2018 for Learning in Reach to assist them with funds they desperately need.
Did you know... Less than half of children aged 3-6 years have access to a preschool in South Africa. Only 6 out of 30 Early Childhood Development centres in Lavender Hill are registered, meeting the minimum standard of childcare required by authorities.
8 out of 10 children can’t read for meaning by the time they reach Grade 4. 82% of people in Lavender Hill over 20 years old never completed Matric, making it almost impossible for them to further their education or find employment.
Please assist us by donating to deliver 3 bookshelves filled with literacy, numeracy and every day living activities to each preschool in Lavender Hill.
Learning In Reach
Learning in Reach has created a blueprint for a holistic early learning and pre-primary education that fosters community enterprise and parental engagement. ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ and we cannot disrupt the Early Childhood Development (ECD) process without addressing all the supporting structures, the main one being the child’s parents and teachers, as role models and leaders of these young children.
