Siphakeme

Siphakeme offers training, empowerment and skills development to pre-school teachers from lower socio-economic communities in Pietermaritzburg area.

Maximum growth of a human brain is in the first six years of life. To maximize this development children require stimulation and teaching. Many young children from lower economic families do not have optimal pre-school learning and many of these pre-schools do not have skilled, trained teachers. Each pre-school teacher trained will impact on the development of 20 to 30 children each year. Siphakem

Siphakeme is so grateful to GHS Interact Society and their teacher Mrs. Jasson. They collected loads of recycled material, stationery, toys and children's books for our preschool Educare teachers. It is just so wonderful when we can partner with our community. Thank you GHS.

We had a wonderful morning of learning with Singakwenza. It was extra special as two of our past Educare ladies presented the course. Thandeka who has also just completed level 4 with us and Vumile. I am so grateful to Singakwenza for being with us today. Our ladies learnt so much about making teaching aids from recycled materials. We had a wonderful day.
