PLANT A SEED EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME:
Most people from underprivileged backgrounds desperately need to begin working the moment they complete Matric or tertiary education to help support their family. Many times this forces the possibility to complete at school. Many opportunities are designed for those who have completed their matric or tertiary level and competence in vocational, numeracy, literacy, computer and analytical skills. However the people who are illiterate and unskilled suffers and struggle a lot to acquire many things or to reach their goals and they always felt neglected when it comes to opportunities.
It is true that many people in South Africa suffer from poor or complete lack of access to basic, and advanced levels of education. Lack of basic or advanced education and opportunities is a significant factor in the prevalent problem that is poverty. Being Literate or having a Matric is an entry point of opportunities and a better future. People leaving school without Matric, they are finding it increasingly difficult to find stable jobs and opportunities. This leads to increased poverty as they are forced to live on the breadline just to survive and impacts on crime.
Therefore our service aims to support, strengthen and empower all from children to adults to improve their level of education so that they can acquire skills, opportunities and decrease illiteracy.
This service aims to:
-Strengthen, promote and empower the performance of learning around the learners by creating an environment where they will be able to strengthen their academic performance and improve their competency in literacy, numeracy, vocational and analytical skills through English, mathematics and computer skills.
-Provide study guidance, materials, support, and learning and development opportunities to under performing learners, those with lower results, and those who couldn’t finish schooling and sustain the performance of those who performs well.
-To assess, identify and manage learners performance, behavior and provide early preventative intervention with teacher, parent and child components to promote effective learner performance and development.
-Enhance protective factors and reduce identified risk factors by providing prevention programmes to prevent, reduce and lessen the risk factors that lead the learners and young people to substance abuse, gangsterism, illiteracy, school drop-out and truancy.
