Ikamva Youth

Ikamva Youth

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

IkamvaYouth supports disadvantaged secondary school students in township communities with supplementary academic tutoring, career guidance mentoring and e-learning. All programme delivery is provided by volunteers, most of whom are university students who were previously learners in the programme.

With 60% of learners becoming volunteers, beneficiaries turn into benefactors, and provide peer-learning, networks and resources to enable the next generation of learners to access tertiary education or employment opportunities. There are no academic requirements or fees for entry, but in order to keep their place in the programme, learners need to meet a minimum 75% attendance.

There are 3.4 million learners from the bottom four levels of the Living Standard Measure in South Africa. These learners live in townships and rural areas, and attend schools which, for the most part, provide little support on the road towards academic achievement.

Roughly 75% of SA schools are dysfunctional (Spaull, 2012). Participants in the IkamvaYouth program self select and enroll during eighth, ninth or tenth grade at one of the organisation?s 10 branches around the country.

South Africa?s education system is in crisis, and youth unemployment is rising. Despite large sums of funds spent in attempts to address these problems, very little has worked; in literacy and numeracy benchmarks, the country is consistently ranked lower than others on the continent with far fewer resources, and youth unemployment is increasing annually.

Yet IkamvaYouth has developed a highly effective, low-cost model which enables learners from the poorest-performing township schools to achieve academic results that mirror those of the best-resourced schools in the country. While 35% of South Africans between 18 and 25 are not in education or employment (NEETs), 90% of ikamvanites graduate from high school, 70% access tertiary education, and a further 10% access internships or jobs.

South Point

Crunchbase | Website | Twitter | Facebook | Linkedin

South Point was established in 2003 to meet the growing need for student accommodation in South Africa. When we entered the property business we found exploitative landlords to be the prevailing alternative to on-campus housing.

The majority of students resided in poorly maintained and expensive accommodation – hardly conducive to promoting a successful study and social environment. We, therefore, sought to focus our efforts on providing a differentiated offering to the student market, with an emphasis on safety, cleanliness, and affordability at the core complimented by a vibrant student community.

South Point’s vision to become the country’s largest and leading independent provider of student accommodation outside of the universities themselves has been largely realized in the 9 years since operations commenced. We, however, continue to strive to create a lifestyle brand of distinction where students come to [reside with us while they] catapult their ambitions of personal growth through higher education.

We still harbor ambitions yet of creating a business of even larger scale with more than 20,000 student beds without compromising the overarching objective of creating a unique experience for every student that chooses to be part of our community.. .

The SeeBox teaches learners about electronic engineering in the form of a game. It encompasses 6 professional test instruments into one, measuring the learner’s output as experiments are completed.

The SeeBox inludes an ecosystems of learning material and experiments, aligned with the CAPS curriculum. The SeeBox as a game console concept: Learners, young and old, watch entertaining computer animated videos to learn about concepts in electronics.

They then use that knowledge to progress through the “game” by doing real practical experiments with electronics, using PC boards and components, called Playboards. The SeeBox measures what they are doing and, based on the outcome of the experiment, they proceed to the next level or they must try again.

The aim is for the student to gain real practical understanding, not just theoretical knowledge.. .
