The Wesolve4X maths tutoring program has impacted the lives of more than 3500 school learners in Gauteng this year alone, inspiring future leaders. We want to bring change on a massive scale, which is why we are asking ordinary South Africans, companies and organisations to join the movement by assisting to educate and feed learners from underserved communities.
This year we mark Mandela month by inviting South Africans to help us reach 46 664 learners. The figure holds historical significance as it represents Nelson Mandela’s Robben Island prison number. We are remembering his selfless sacrifice by encouraging South Africans to help liberate children from illiteracy and hunger. As Wesolve4x we regard education as a catalyst for change, just as Mandela did.
The Wesolve4x program helps to solve a child’s maths problem while also reducing the levels of hunger within our communities. Not only do we tutor learners, but we also conduct Maths Masterclasses for their parents so that they can effectively facilitate homework. The classes are free of charge with an optional grocery package costed at R250. The Wesolve4x approach is based on the following model: Maths plus, Parents minus Hunger (Maths + Parents-Hunger).
People can participate by helping learners whose families cannot afford the grocery package through donating R250 per month. There is no limit to the number of children you can adopt, but even contributing towards one learner will go a long way in helping them to succeed in their studies.
The majority of children in our program have parents who are unemployed, and the situation has worsened with the Covid 19 pandemic. But we refuse to see innocent young lives being destroyed by illiteracy and hunger in our lifetime.
Working together we can do something about it and change lives. The 46 664 will be a milestone towards our ultimate mission to reach 1 million learners. The campaign will run until we achieve the milestone, and we will use social media platforms to communicate our progress.
We are extremely gratefulful to those who have supported our mission. Companies such as Algorithm Consultants and Actuaries,MBE Consulting, Actuarail Society of South Africa, Money Fundi, Aido Network International and others have already played their part by adoping learners.
“Aido Network International supports the call to help end hunger and accelerate literacy in the community through the WeSolve4X campaign. We call upon everyon to give towards this noble purpose,” says Aido Network President HH Prince Paul J Eganda.
Others including the Association of Black Actuarial Professionals(ASABA), Brand SA and College SA have also supported our course by helping us to host a succefulevent at Thabotona Primary School aimed at addressing youth unemployment in June.
“MBE Consulting are proud to sponsor Wesolve4X and their campaign against the backdrop of such an intrinsic part of South Africa’s history. Food and education are a fundamental right for all, that’s why contributing towards helping Wesolve4X to change this, starting with reaching 46,664 learners sends a powerful message – one that matters to everyone at MBE,” says MBE Marketing Manager Simone O’ Connor.
