Starting Chance Outings for Township Children

Cape for kids has partnered with Starting Chance, a nonprofit organisation focused on giving children from the early childhood sector a flying start on their educational journey.

In a recent survey by the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)), South Africa ranked 75th out of 76 countries in maths and science. To change this shocking result, we need to start with children in the early childhood sector.

90% of township children have never had the opportunity to leave their township. Baseline evaluations done at preschools in Mfuleni Township in Cape Town showed that the children do not have any grasp of concepts related to nature and science. Three years of outings, pre outing workshops and post outing activities in the classroom have changed these results significantly.
