Penreach NGO Mpumalanga
Making equal education possible for all South African children
If there is perhaps something that should keep us up at night, as a nation, this is it:
58% of Grade 4 learners in South Africa cannot read for meaning, while 29% are considered illiterate.
The effects of this crisis will continue to be felt for decades to come.
It is a crisis in education that continues to perpetuate inequality and poverty.
We invite you to receive a glimpse of our humble efforts to contribute to education excellence for one and all South Africans.
