Lisa for Learning in Reach

Personal message

Less than half of children in South Africa have access to a quality preschool education. This plays out in our poor education results. 8 out of 10 children in Grade 4 are not able to read for meaning, and the true matric pass rate is 39% of children entering the education system.

Financing of early learning programmes has lagged well behind that of primary and secondary education. Investments in primary and secondary education will not see the intended returns if we do not ensure that young children enter school with the foundational skills needed to learn.

While this may not affect you directly, it has a significant impact on our economy and a long term influence on our social system including levels of poverty and crime.

You can help! Donate to Learning in Reach this Mandela Day 2018 and inspire your friends to do the same!

Learning In Reach

Learning In Reach Logo

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.
