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.
Commonly known as “LoveLife”, we are a South African non-profit youth organisation that was established in 1999 as a joint initiative of leading South African non-governmental organisations, private foundations and the South African government. With the passage of time our vision has evolved to not only focus on HIV prevention, but rather to become “a leader in Youth Health Promotion” where Health, in line with the World Health Organisation (WHO), is defined as a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”. We position our programmes not only for risk reduction and active lifestyles but also as the generator of empowered young people with a better future. We are POWERING THE FUTURE!
05 Walnut Road, Smart Xchange Building, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal 4001.
We work with 21 schools in a deeply rural and under-resourced area of KwaZulu-Natal. We run pre-schools, offer ‘top-up’ teaching programmes with a particular focus on Maths and English, provide educator development and mentoring support, and have a life skills and job-readiness programme. This allows us to support over 6 000 students and 200 educators from their first contact with education, through to a student’s consideration of what’s next.
