The Thandulwazi Trust
Across the spectrum, educational and political analysts have recognised that South African education is in crisis. Our schooling system is not producing enough well-skilled and competent learners to meet the demands of a growing economy, and the teaching profession is not attracting sufficient graduates to satisfy future educational needs. The task of reforming education in South Africa is too big for government alone, which is why private-public educational partnerships and collaboration are critical, particularly in key subjects like Mathematics and Physical Science.
Founded 11 years ago by the St Stithians Foundation, Thandulwazi is a significant contributor to the advancement of Maths and Science education through its interaction with students and teachers in a large number of Gauteng schools, and a presence in Limpopo province. This nation-building programme aims to empower young South Africans so that they can flourish and break the cycle of poverty in which many HDSA communities are trapped. By giving more young people access to quality education, they receive the knowledge and skills to become active members of the broader South African community and economy. Effective, well-trained and professional teachers also play a critical role if this goal is to be achieved.
