As of this month, June 2012, My Maths Buddy and the non-governmental organisation, Education Africa, are about to take a giant leap in the rehabilitation of Mathematics in South Africa. Three other prominent NGO’s are joining forces in this project and their names will be released shortly.
The project is being launched wherein all corporates, companies and concerned individuals can join in to provide My Maths Buddy to thousands of underprivileged schoolkids. Because Education Africa has offices in the UK and USA, this allows anyone in those countries to participate too.
This is the 1Book 1Learner Project!
It is relatively simple.
Companies, corporates or individuals sign up as members in the Project. They do this by taking on the donation of 1 or more books per month, on a debit order system. Single donations can also be made. Education Africa, for every 3000 donated copies, then distributes these to needy schools on behalf of the donors. The donors themselves, receive their tax exemption certificate for their donation AND their names included inside the book on the Donors Page plus receive a copy of the logo for their use on their stationary to indicate they are members.
The purpose of this project is as follows:
1. Placing My Maths Buddy into the hands of thousands of needy South African Teachers and Learners so as to increase the understanding of and ability to apply Mathematics to the degree of positively influencing the study of pure Mathematics and the Matric pass rate in South Africa;
2. Focus on the provision of My Maths Buddy to underprivileged or less economically able schools so as to provide opportunity to those less privileged.
With Maths results consistently below a 50% pass rate in South Africa in the last few years, THIS is a means to unlock the potential of our kids and get the results back up well over 50%. Economically, we really cannot afford to do anything else!
So if you are either a business owner, part of a large corporate or a concerned individual, you CAN participate in this exciting project.
