Building Blocks for Numeracy

In 2022 and 2023 we focused on literacy. In 2024 we shift our focus to numeracy. Nelson Mandela was passionate about education and so are we. South Africa rates very low in the world numeracy statistics worldwide. Research has shown that very little time is spent focusing on pre-numeracy skills in the early childhood classroom and the knock on effect is low numeracy skills in foundation phase and beyond. With knowledge and training of the parents and practitioners we can change this. Throughout Mandela Month, we will be running workshops for parents, practitioners and principals. We will be distributing numeracy kits to all our schools and will be providing training on how to use these kits. Help us to give these children the chance they need to become numerate.
