Phenduka is the Zulu word for "turnaround". The Phenduka Literacy Project is committed to improving the learning and teaching of literacy and mathematics at Middle School level in four of the primary schools in the township of Alexandra, in Johannesburg. It does this through the diagnostic testing and remedial teaching of Grade 7 students at the schools served, and through the running of workshops to improve the proficiency and effectiveness of teachers in developing literacy and mathematics skills. The choice of Middle School level for intervention is to ensure that learners do not enter High School with literacy and mathematics levels inadequate for learning.
We transport those children that need help from Alexandra, which is a disadvantaged place to our venue in a nearby suburb, which is better and more encouraging. Your donation will help us pay for school taxis to give these children access to our programme. With your help, we will be able to pay the school taxi for the next 12 months.
