Help teach Sefako Makgato learners learn to read online with Kagisano Foundation's Mobile Reading LaCharity
"Reading skills take time to develop and effort to nurture. I truly believe that improving the numeracy and literacy levels among South African children from townships and rural areas can be achieved in our lifetime, provided that time and effort is invested by all citizens." - Koketso Lediga
At the beginning of 2019, Kagisano Foundation (reg no.: 150-928 NPO), finalised the plan for its most ambitious project - the Mobile Reading Lab project. The project was launched at Sefako Makagtho Primary School in Atteridgeville.
The aim of the Mobile Reading Lab is to teach learners in townships schools how to read using an online reading program while developing the computer skills of the learners. We started with 160 grade one learners from Sefako Makgatho Primary School. Each learner gets access to a laptop, mouse, headsets and a licence for the reading program for each lesson that takes place twice a week. Our commitment to each individual learner is to provide the equipment and renew their licence every year for the next 5 years, until the complete every level on the program.
We would like to continue doing this for the current intake of grade one learners and take on a second group of grade one learners in 2020. One licence for a year (per learner costs) R180 and as such we need R28 800.00 for the second intake of grade one learners 2020.
Please help us teach more learners how to read online while developing more computer literate learners and getting them ready for the ever-changing modern world.
