Why Online - Homework support?
South Africa’s basic education system was ranked 75th out of 76 countries in a recent OECD report looking at maths and science results. What was also observed is that:
- Very few learners who enter grade 1 are likely to matriculate and even fewer will qualify for higher education
- Many who graduate are often ill-prepared for the working world and are likely to end up unemployed
A recent study by DBE and NECT (National Education Collaboration Trust) found that parental and community involvement is critical in the schooling system to support overall learner achievement. However such involvement is currently very low due to various social dynamics such as level of education, health issues, cultural backgrounds and work related absence from home.
IT IS VERY CLEAR! MANY LEARNERS ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF SUPPORT FOR HOME-BASED LEARNING WITH SIMPLE THINGS SUCH AS HOMEWORK AND SCHOOL PROJECTS.
COVID-19 will only make matters much worse as learners and parents need to work together to catch up on lost time.

Little help goes a long way in assisting the needy Learners.
