The Online Tutoring Initiative
In order to combat the dropping rates of children from school and not finishing their matric because of affordability or responsibilities we are embarking on a 5 year programme that will combine free online courses offered by InsideCourses.com with technology provided by a technology company for communities in order to educate, equip and empower them to remain in school to complete their education.
The initiative will be aimed towards kids in Grades 8-12 in areas such as Bonteheuwel, Mitchells Plain whereby they will be educated via InsideCourses in which the courses will be provided to them on hand held digital devices. A tutoring company has already been secured that will provide the content and tutoring support that will be taught via the online platform. We foresee this as a 5 year pilot project to combat the dropping out rates of kids from school and assist them in completing their education from Grade 8 to matric.
This programme will also be monitored, evaluated, and researched by the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. We are currently seeking a sponsorship of 6 million per year to enable this initiative to start in the Western Cape and the rest of the country in the consequent years.
This programme is dedicated to the late Mario Hadon who was a partner in this project. His technology company, MH Consulting was secured to provide the digital devices but he sadly passed away earlier this year.
