Sikhululekile Reading Development and Life Skills started this petition to National Department of Basic Education https://www.education.gov.za/EducationinSA.aspx and

South Africa has some of the worst literacy and numeracy rates in Africa. A recent study shows that 80% of our grade 4 learners can fully not understand the meaning of the material they are reading. To address this challenge many South African start non profit organization that of After School care programs that offer tutoring, sports and Life Skills to children. The intervention from these after school care programs has been proven to very effective however a majority of these programs end up closing shop because of a lack of support from schools, government, communities and corporates. I would like to see our government to do more to assist these programs by assist with resources like study materials, feeding for the kids and a central government system that assists with monitoring and evaluation. Without support these programs end up failing and this affects the children who are the benefiaries.
