Homework club

DialAFlight Helps Tackle Unemployment in Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, SA

DialAFlight has been able to assist with the creation of new homework clubs set up in the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve (WBR) in Limpopo, SA, with the aim of improving education provision and employment rates for young people in the area.

Unemployment is a growing problem among the youth of the region, and the WBR conducted research into possible ways to improve prospects for young people while boosting the local economy. The research found that for science and maths, grades in the region averaged only 30 per cent - not enough for most of the colleges and other further education providers in the area.

After consulting with local head teachers, the WBR concluded that homework clubs would be the best solution to the problem. These would be set up independently of the schools but running the same syllabus' for science and maths, and with the help of The Clabile Trust, the project began in May 2012. Financial support from DialAFlight allowed for the purchase of equipment necessary for the homework clubs, including a laptop, television, projector, DVD player and printer.

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Dial-A-Flight for their incredible support, without this help we would not have been able to start this project," said a spokesperson for the Clabile Trust. "We firmly believe that through our Homework Clubs young people in the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve have a better chance of improving their long term situations, and, in time, we will be able to expand our project so that we can assist more young people," they added.

The homework clubs are intended to benefit young people in the area as they offer a more relaxed atmosphere than the schools, and provide smaller class sizes. The WBR also intends to expand the clubs to allow unemployed people in the area to study for re-sits of their science and maths exams, giving them a better chance of furthering their education or gaining employment.
