What we do?
We partner with community based organisations already deeply entrenched in a community to implement our STEM Community Engagement Model. Our model creates awareness, builds interest, develops skills and confidence and eliminates impediments to STEM excellence as modeled below:
Where we work?
We are currently working in four provinces across South Africa, which are Limpopo and North West in the North, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) in the South and Gauteng.
In Limpopo, we have partnered with Legacy Giving Afterschool and Monitoring Centre (LGAMC), which operates in the Tshaulu communities in the Vhembe district of rural Limpopo. In KZN, we partnered with I Learn to Live, a community-based organisation looking after orphaned and vulnerable children in the Empangeni community. In Gauteng, we are partnering with Rhiza Babuyile for Diepsloot, and Tsogang Sechaba Community Project for Phiri, Tshiawelo, Maphetla in Soweto. We recently also began a partnership with Boitekong Progressive Youth in the North West Province.
Growth is an important aspect of our development therefore we are always on the lookout for new CBO partners to enable the expansion of our work.
How we fund our work?
Given the work we are doing in communities, and the number of communities we work in, we are one of the only organisations in the country with a unique insight into the realities of youth unemployment and STEM challenges within several communities, through the surveys and other research we conduct. Our intention is to package our research outcomes and analysis and make them available to government , CBOs, research institutes and any other organisations that would be interested in this type of information which will help in creating policies, evaluating STEM program efficacy and ultimately improve STEM outcomes in South Africa.
Corporate partner in promoting Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics(STEM). Litha Healthcare Group (Pty) Ltd has enabled us to implement STEM After Schools Programs in the communities of Tshaulu Manzemba in Vhembe District, Limpopo.
