“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Over the last 25 years Rose-Act Saturday School has taught, influenced and dramatically improved the lives of thousands of children in Alexandra Township.
The mission of the School is to make a measurable difference to a significant number of disadvantaged children in Alexandra Township in order to address basic educational needs, and to teach social and spiritual life-skills which are crucial in the circumstances in which they live.
Many children in Alexandra suffer from a weak basic education in English as a second language, and in Mathematics as the core skills needed to complete school successfully, and therefore do not obtain the marks that enable entrance into the tertiary arena. This is exacerbated by the fact that they do not have the necessary educational support structures or a positive social environment, and are being influenced by numerous negative pressures. This reality supports the view that as building blocks of education, there is an urgent need to improve English and Mathematics skills.
Rose-Act has produced significant results. Click here to see the difference this Saturday School is making to the lives of so many children in realising their dreams of an education and of a better life.
