Our Mission Statement:
Transforming the rural South African town of Komani (formerly known as Queenstown) into a universally-recognized center of educational excellence.
How are you solving it:
We support a growing network of collaborating schools in one rural South African town to thrive in the 4th industrial revolution by implementing six different innovative programmes that, together, promote cost efficient technological advancements. These programmes include an overarching digital network, collaborative fundraising, a multi-school STEAM Club, a Maths and Science Community of Practice and systemic approach to learners' and teachers' wellbeing. We are also building social cohesion among school leaders.
Why are you qualified:
The Queenstown Education Foundation has been in existence for 10 years. Its Directors and Project Managers are heart-centered South African professionals who have served the local school community with a thorough understanding of our affiliated schools' strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. We have enough funding already for basic operations. We have developed various high impact programmes.
What is the urgency:
The faster we can build more powerful technology and Communities of Practice, the quicker we can reach further into under-resourced learning communities in surrounding areas of the impoverished rural Eastern Cape.
