2 Passions Combined - Edu Fun
DCS learners field trip
2PC – 2 Passions Combined I would like to take learners from DCS (Diepsloot Combined School) for a two-day educational experience that aims to improve their English literacy within the beauty of the Mabula Game Reserve, where I work as a Field Guide. My inspiration comes from Edu Fun’s current Holiday Programme, where I was privileged to volunteer last year, and the results were truly amazing. Siyabonga, a Grade 2 learner at DCS, planted a kiss on my cheek on the last day and said, “I’m not scared to read anymore”. (His assessment went from 7% at the beginning of the year to 96% at the end of the year). I hope to achieve similar results with this project, with as many learners as I can. Did you know that these children are mostly only exposed to English in Grade 2, yet from Grade 4, all their lessons are taught in English? What educational chance do they have if they don’t grasp the English basics during Grade 2 & 3? Help us achieve our goal, by becoming a partner of the 2PC project and donate an amount of your choice, by clicking on the link provided in our email. We make use of the Loving Thy Neighbour platform www.lovingthyneighbour.org to raise the funds. OUR GOAL: To raise half of the funds by end of January and the other half by end of February 2019. Warm Regards, Karen Stowell – Mabula Game Reserve Field Guide & Edu Fun Volunteer.
