The Wheels of Education Keep Turning for a Rural School District

4/1/2020

 

Access to education for many school children throughout South Africa has become an even greater obstacle due to Covid-19. The David Rattray Foundation at Fugitive's Drift Lodge in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, is taking great steps to ensure that children in the local community are still receiving an education even during lockdown by bringing them the innovative KHULA Education.

"Today we won - a small but important victory. We delivered the first round of KHULA Education Home Study Packs to 1,684 pupils in the uMzinyathi District, ahead of the Covid-19 national lockdown" reported Debbie Heustice, Director KHULA Education on March 25th.

In the last two weeks, the team created an "out of the box" plan for KHULA's 152 preschoolers and 1,684 school children. The home study packs are delivered to safe drop-off points. Once the children complete their work, the packs are returned, collected by teachers, marked, and returned to pupils together with a new study pack.

Physical delivery is essential as internet learning is not possible in the rural uMzinyathi District – due to a lack of internet and the prohibitive cost of computers and data. In an effort to improve the situation, within the month, the David Rattray Foundation will install its own Wi-Fi tower at Isandlwana, which will bring free internet usage to pupils in households with computers.
