Botshabelo breaks barriers

Posted on Mon February 5, 2018.

Botshabelo is a multifaceted charity based in Johannesburg, South Africa. They are passionate about transforming children’s lives through excellent residential care and education. UpliftED is the Teacher Training Programme partnering into impoverished communities to empower both the teachers and their preschools to offer a better, more solid foundation in education. They reach into communities where many preschools are under-equipped, have poor facilities and the teachers are untrained. Zamokuhle is the first rural school that they are working with.

Four super-energetic, super-motivated, super-stars travel all the way from Johannesburg every two months in order to train the unqualified “teachers” that care for the children in our Learning Centres. The results have been unbelievable. The feedback from the community has been exceptional. Previously, the children at the centre would sleep all day. Now, they can sing the national anthem, say the days of the week in English & cut with a pair of scissors.

We do dream that one day Zamokuhle Centre of Learning in Hambrook can be the TRAINING centre for this area!
