Thope Foundation, in collaboration with Cyclists for Change, is launching its #Cycle4Literacy Campaign to raise awareness about the importance of early literacy and numeracy for children in disadvantaged schools. Thope Foundation is a non-profit public benefit organisation that provides remedial literacy and numeracy support to Grade R to Grade 7 learners in township primary schools. Additionally, the organisation runs Cape Town’s only township girls’ robotics club, educates girls on sexual reproductive health and empowers caregivers to support pre-adolescent girls navigating life and high school.
The aim of the #Cycle4Literacy Campaign is to raise R100, 000 to support Thope Foundation’s programs, raise awareness about investment in this critical issue where South African children continue to lag behind. Through dedicated volunteers, we run hour long sessions with pairs of children for a minimum of six months using a tried and tested approach that enables rapid progress over relatively short periods of times. These sessions are run in a fun and stimulating environment designed for children. Over 400 learners benefit from Thope Foundation programs a year.
You can join the Cycle4Literacy Campaign by:
- R 10 sponsors a kilometre cycled,
- R100 for a resource pack used by volunteers,
- R300 is a monthly nutritious meal,
- Pledge towards the R100, 000
Thope Foundation is Section 18A approved organisation and provides 18A certificates for donations over R500. Contact them here for more ways to get involved.
