The most effective way we can make an impact is through the power of education. Our Teaching and Education programs are imperative to what we aspire to deliver at African Impact. Not only will volunteers have the opportunity to enrich the lives of the kids, who are full of enthusiasm to learn, they will also directly inspire them to thrive and achieve great things. Currently, the English literacy rates are very low, demonstrating significantly low standards for education.

  • 2017: It has been reported that 80% of Grade 4 students in South Africa cannot read or comprehend English.
  • Volunteers provide vital support in basic and rural schools in so many ways. By enhancing the quality of education by supporting an overburdened teacher, easing the load for effective teaching, while also providing essential one to one support for children falling behind in their education. Through providing outreach and teaching support, our volunteers have already achieved amazing results:

  • In January 2018, our volunteers at Antelope Park were directed involved in helping an incredible 19 out of 20 Mkoba 4 Primary School Special Needs student, attain the standards required for re-integration into the main stream for 2018. This is a huge achievement and testament to the hard work of our volunteers and the significance of their support for these children.
  • It is truly because of volunteer support that these achievements are possible. Volunteers will extent their influence in multiple ways, From planning captivating and fulfilling lessons, to contributing towards extra curricular activities or sports coaching, engaging and motivating kids, giving them the opportunity to try something new and develop a passion for. You will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture, learning while you teach!
