South Africa > Tswalu Kalahari

Tswalu runs its own registered pre-school for all children who live on the reserve. The children benefit from a range of early learning programmes that prepare them for their formal schooling. In addition Tswalu has a full-time teacher devoted to our ABET adult literacy programme where learning is all computer-based, raising further skills in the process. This investment is transforming literacy levels from 12% a decade ago to over 70% today. But the aim is for 100% literacy among staff.
