Social Justice and Mercy – Educational Support Programme
Educational Support Programme
This was launched in July 2016 to bridge the gap between school and home, with supervised homework sessions for the primary school children in Mbutshane, Sweetwaters. Often there is no one at home to help them or a table at which to sit. Nellie Ngubane and her two helpers are there every weekday afternoon, in the church facility at Mbutshane, to offer their help. After homework is over, various crafts are available and a library with both isiZulu and English books is running at the venue. On Friday afternoons, when there is no homework, there are organized sports to enjoy. Singing and dance are also activities really enjoyed and a choir was formed.
Every weekday evening, there is also a supervised Matric Study Programme including all subjects, which has proved most successful and well supported by Matrics. All our 2017 Matrics passed their final exams!
