Support education now!

We are inviting South Africans to make a difference in education, with our new I Support Education initiative. I Support Education seeks to address two key educational challenges in South Africa: Digital training for teachers, and maths education for learners. Digital education holds enormous potential to catapult the South African basic education system well into the twenty-first century, if teachers themselves are properly trained to use emerging education technology to its full potential in an educationally sound way. Parallel to that, maths education for learners at primary school level is critical not only for individual success, but for the well-being of the country’s growth and economic development. “Every South African values education,” says CEO Christina Watson, “But it’s often difficult to know where to help, or how your donations and contributions are spent. With I Support Education, we wanted to create a way for any South African not only to donate to a teacher’s digital education training or a school’s maths education, but for them to see exactly where and how that money is spent.” Via Afrika’s I Support Education initiative challenges members of the public to get involved in two ways: 1. Support a teacher wanting to undergo digital education training through the Via Afrika Digital Education Academy, or 2. Support an eligible primary school wishing to subscribe to the Via Afrika Tabtor Maths programme.

Help your child become a maths genius! Do you love the idea of personalised maths tutoring for your child, but loathe the hours of worksheet marking and commuting it steals from your day? Or maybe you feel that the best maths tutoring programmes cost a fortune and are beyond your budget? Via Afrika firmly believes that each child’s learning ability is unique and deserves customisation – not some one size-fits-all method of teaching, or worse, one size-fits-all extra lessons teaching.
