Macmillan Teacher Campus has been working in partnership with Unitrade745 (PTY) Ltd. – a harness manufacturing company, based in Kwa-Dukuza, KwaZulu-Natal. Unitrade’s CSI focus is aimed at uplifting the educators and learners of schools in the rural areas of Kwa-Dukuza.
Through this learner support programme, Macmillan Teacher Campus offers supplementary classes for Maths, Physical Sciences and English, to learners from Lethitemba and Hulett Secondary schools. These classes take place on Saturdays and in the school holidays during the year.
Every year, Unitrade745 (PTY) Ltd. donates laptops and tablets to the top achievers and learners who had 100% attendance in the programme. Macmillan also ensures that these learners receive a meal during the Saturday classes, to maintain their concentration.
The following video tells the story of one of the top achievers, Fikelephi Makhathini and her family. It showcases why the Macmillan Teacher Campus team are so passionate about what they do. We work with real educators, who teach real kids, experiencing real challenges. We make an impact on the lives of educators who, with so little, try to do so much.
We share our experience, knowledge and resources to make a difference in the lives of the educators and ultimately, those of the learners.
