  • Southern Africa Partners SA NPC (SnAPSA)

  • We provide psycho-social support to learners in the Alexandra Township schools, in Johannesburg, Gauteng with the aim to prevent disengagement from school. We work with the learner to address issues that they have so that they attend class, improve their marks and grow in self confidence. We do home visits to assess the situation and refer to services available. We partner with other NGOs in the community so as to not duplicate services but to enhance what each of us do.

  • Shine Literacy

  • In South Africa, 78% of Grade Four children cannot read for meaning (PIRLS, 2016). We, at Shine Literacy, are helping to transform the prospects of some of South Africa’s most vulnerable children by breaking the destructive cycle of poor literacy, low educational attainment, wasted potential and poverty. We do this by providing structured English literacy support to children, providing storybooks and readers and empowering parents and caregivers through Family Literacy Workshops. We work in partnership with like-minded NGO’s, individuals and non-profit organisations to raise awareness and develop approaches that are appropriate and sustainable.

  • Reading to Learn South Africa

  • Through rigorous training, we give teachers the tools to use the power of genre-based pedagogy in every subject for every learner at every level. Our methodology has been developed in response to current urgent needs, particularly of marginalised learners, to rapidly improve reading and writing for educational access and success. These theoretical foundations are integrated in a set of teaching strategies that are optimally practical in diverse classroom settings, and accessible for teachers to acquire and use as part of their ordinary practice in their grade or curriculum area.

  • The Bookery

  • We create and support libraries in under-resourced schools. We set up the space and employ a young person in the community as a library assistant (LA) to maintain and facilitate the library. We then continue to provide literacy support through activities, competitions, site visits, LA meetings and training workshops. Our mission is to create a culture of reading. We believe that every child deserves to experience the power and joy of reading and the opportunity to become informed, active citizens.
