If the tipping point of R5,625 is achieved, this will be used to purchase the box with 2 tablets. This will give an opportunity for the learning to start and for further community based fund raising to happen for the rest of the tablets and hardware.
Who are we
Leesaw Solutions and Projects is a community development company situated within Mfuleni in the Western Cape .Mfuleni is regarded as one the poorest township within the Cape Metro. Poverty translates to children in the form unnecessary and curable diseases like Cholera, TB, dysfunctionality and in most cases they are affected by the widespread HIV/AIDS. Substance abuse and violence raging within family is an order of the day.
In our Township schools are experiencing a low passing rate and most of those who do pass are passing with relatively low marks to enter universities. Many of those students who have passed enter higher educational institutions not knowing what they want to further their studies in. Research also indicates that they lack nowledge regarding financial assistance for higher learning institutions. One of the problems which causes high rate of failure is lack of educational resources and educational support.
Leesaw Solutions and Projects has seen the plight of young youth in Mfuleni and could not fold arms but come up with Educational & Development Centre which will address the problems stated above opened the facility will open doors for all youth so that they can enjoy and access to education, thorough learning and development so as to improve their chances of survival and development into good citizens that can access all opportunities as they become available.
More about the project
The Center will serve many purposes: it will assist patrons that need additional educational support; it will provide parents and students with a safe and stable after-school environment; and will serve the community by keeping youth from engaging in unwanted, dangerous, or illegal behaviors.
At the very least, a homework help center offers kids a designated place to go after school where they can get help with their classwork. At its best, the program offers positive human interaction and scholastic support that might otherwise be missing from a youngster’s life The Centre will operate afterschool, it will assist the students with their homework, there will be tutors of different subjects. The Centre will also run life skills program. One of our programmes will be career advice and subject selection advice, recreational activities such as drama, poetry and sport. The Centre will also encourage reading; a book club will be amongst the activities done.
The Centre intends to prepare learners for university, working environment and open their minds to be self-employed in future. The programmes and activities will prepare the students academically and socially. The aim is to build future leaders.
