In 2019 the matriculation pass rate for Grade 12 learners in South Africa was 38.9%. Provincial statistics varied (see image below) but overall, these numbers are an indication of an education system that is in drastic need of change.
Furthermore, during the Covid 19 pandemic, millions of children in South Africa were left without access to sufficient educational tools and support. One Heart for Kids, a South African and US registered non-profit company, aims to address these challenges.
During the Covid-19 crisis, we are raising funds for CAPS approved Key Links Literacy curriculum for under-resourced primary schools and children, as well as psycho-social support, play therapy, counselling and educational toys for at-risk kids. Help us to help them!
