HIuma is a safe place for school children to be together, learn life skills and receive some 1-2-1 tutoring in reading, comprehension and maths. We have 43 children and teenagers attending each week currently, with an age range of 9 to 15 years.
Our computer learning centre is designed and located in order to engage hard to reach communities. These are communities that wouldn’t otherwise take up the opportunity to develop their IT skills to a meaningful level for the marketplace.
Robotics has been identified as a key skill for employment and a fun way for learners to learn maths and science in a practical way. We give weekly classes in collaboration with Futurelabs (a South African robotics business).
In 2017, 10 sewing machines and fabric were donated to a group of women in Tambo Village, Cape Town. This has enabled them to set up training and a blossoming social enterprise selling various crafts and beautiful fabric products that they have made.
At NewDay United, we believe in holistic health strategies – which includes complete physical, mental, social and spiritual wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
