Thuma Mina Teaching

Personal message

South Africa’s education is in a state of crisis and there is a great need for enriching, accessible content to bridge educational inequality across the country. Thuli Madonsela puts it this way: ‘South Africa’s education system is characterized by relatively poor educational outcomes, whilst perpetuating inequality and as a result, failing too many of its children with the poor being the hardest hit’.


The situation in education is so dire that of the 100 learners in Grade 1 – only 26 reach Grade 12 within 12 years and only 14 learners will pass Grade 12 well enough to attend university.


Thuma Mina Teaching addresses these challenges with the vision to accelerate access to quality education. We are a non-profit company that provides free, CAPS-aligned video lessons on our social media platforms, paired with a growing repository of activities in the form of clickable links such as slides, quizzes, and gamified learning. Our content serves as a resource for teachers to implement in their lessons and for learners to develop their own learning, thus helping them to master their subjects and empower themselves through education.


Currently, Thuma Mina Teaching produces resources for 5 subjects across Grades 7, 8 & 9, namely Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Economics and Management Sciences, History, and Geography. Our goal with these grades is to have the entire curricula completed by 2023, enabling us to move onto the production of further subjects and Grades 5, 6, and 10-12 next.


In order to achieve the highest quality of videos for learners, we do not compromise on quality in any way. It takes up to 35 hours to produce just one video lesson. This includes activities such as content development, scriptwriting, quality control, post-production, and dissemination. Each lesson costs around R16 000 to produce.


Thuma Mina Teaching has the vision, passion, and capability but we need your financial help to make the future of our work a reality. We urge you to contribute to this proactive approach to end educational inequality for all and to make a difference in so many people’s lives going forward.


By investing yourselves in Thuma Mina Teaching’s vision you will -


  • Receive a Section 18a certificate as we are a registered PBO
  • Maximize your BEE points as we are a level 1 BEE contributor


But most importantly, you will become an intrinsic part of uplifting a nation. And, to end off with another quote from Thuli Madonsela: “Education has enormous potency to achieve social justice’.  We invite you therefore to work with Thuma Mina Teaching to achieve just this – social justice in this country wherein every learner receives high-quality education that is both free and accessible going forward.
