‘By means of education and effective support systems, the foundation of our work has always been to give a hope and a future to children from poverty stricken areas,’ says Daleen Labuschagne of Khula Development Group.
‘With the closing of schools and strict health and safety protocols earlier this year, we were unable to continue our educational journey with vulnerable learners. We knew it was important that learners participate in school-related activities even while they were at home, so we developed a Go2school@home package that contained a variety of child development materials and play resources.
On a weekly basis our staff members did home visits and facilitated various activities with learners. Whether their homes were equipped for educational activities or not, we made it work. Seeing these children’s faces each time we arrived was priceless,’ says Daleen.
