Randy Mampuru a recent graduate of the Red-bull Academy is pioneering ECD .She has opened Kidz Hub a programme aimed at encouraging education and investments to young children.Social-Tv had a word with the young pioneer to converse about the project she has been running and she said
“At Kidz Hub we are all about instilling life time skills,practically and actively. For instance:
- we save R2 everyday towards our writing utensils and books. In that way we are able to practice Commitment (when kids commit themselves to saving R2);
- Consistency (when the kids contribute R2 everyday);
- Sacrifice (the kids don’t buy snacks along the way)
While they practicing the above skills they are taking leadership, initiative and responsibility. Our sessions take place in home garages, which is convenient for both the kids and the parents knowing that home is a few houses away.”
“We have created convenient spaces where kids come in everyday with their homework. They are then assisted by volunteering university students. We also save and have activities that make them practice the skills we want to instill in them.”
.The kids have shown tremendous growth in their academics and there is progress in how they carry themselves.
