Lavender Hill Project
It has taken great effort and personal financial resources to accomplish a project such as Learner Empowerment Program. I must emphasise that it is impossible to comprehend the challenges that these students have to through to complete a school career to Grade 12. The social and economic environment does not lend itself to optimal learning. The lack of basic education in health care and pregnancy prevention adds to the challenges. Through God’s grace we as Bold Empowerment are able to address these challenges in a holistic way and provide all the required assistance to these learners.
We have been with these learners since 2012 through to 2013 up to their matric farewell and dance. We have assisted with everything from makeup to dresses, matric dance monies and cars for transportation etc. More than 70% of our learners passed grade 12 in spite of the negative assumption that they would not.
