Academic Achievement

Poor education, poor performance academically and also Orphans and Vulnerable Children dropping out of school and not encouraged to study by their parents were also cited by the Home Based Caregivers and the children themselves as issues. We assist the children to learn to study, to persevere, to have the confidence to ask teachers if they dont understand, to work together in small study groups. We also encourage parents to actively support their children in doing their homework, in going to school and doing their best (a tenant of scouting).

The Government schools pass rate for Limpopo is 62% averaged over 10yrs. Keep The Dream196 pass rate averaged for 10yrs is 90%. A majority of our children have gone on to tertiary education because of their achievements at high school. The children are persuing their dreams of becoming doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, acturalists, naturalists, chartered accountants, engineers (chemical, mechanical and civil), fitters and turners, Electricians, plumbers etc.

The graduates are adding to the tax base, they are breaking the poverty cycles for their families and their communities. In order to participate in our program every child has to be attending school. We actually have some kids drop back into school after being a part of our program for a very short period of time,. When they realize it’s a pre-condition to attending the program they opt back in to school and do exceptionally well.

As you can see from the graph in 2012 (the year of the general strike) and 2013 (the year textbooks were not delivered to some of our schools and a tragic impact on the students and many failed. A majority of our learners are receiving Bachelor entry to university. In a majority of our children we have noticed a tendency to return and upgrade their results by re-sitting their matric in order to qualify for their specific course at university, such is their determination.

Education has become a prized commodity and an acknowledged route out of poverty. We have also noticed that our learners utilizing their community service and involvement in community programs as leverage for employment and also university entrance which is very satisfying for them and for us.
