Tolerance Education Awareness Movement
Prosperity Index 2018 Report registered a major decline in South Africa's Personal Freedoms Pillar which measures amongst others the social tolerance levels of a country and when it comes to Safety and Security, we are in the South African Development Community(SADC) region rankings at no. 13 out of 14 countries. We are only safer than the civil war riddled Democratic Republic of Congo.
SOUTH AFRICANS ARE INTOLERANT AND VIOLENT!
Tolerance Education Awareness Movement NPC (TEAM) was established a year ago by three victims of political intolerance who realized that despite Minister Kader Asmal establishing a Steering/Working Group in 2001 to investigate which values are prerequisites for quality education, little has been done to incorporate tolerance into the school curriculum. The lack of tolerance in our schools has led to violent sometimes fatal incidents between educators and learners as well as amongst learners. The Minister of Basic Education shocked many in 2016 when she announced that the South African school kids are the most bullied in the world.
It is thus this realization that compels us to establish a Tolerance Education Fund which will be used to lobby and advocate for tolerance education to be included in our curriculum.
With our politics polarizing the country, we cannot afford to have another angry generation! Kindly assist us in any manner to ensure that we reach our goal as the NPC.
