WE CAN’T weather but control WE CAN control the outcome of early childhood education
A group of six South African adventurers recently failed in their attempt to summit the world’s highest active volcano. Their mission - to raise awareness to the plight of early childhood education in S.A.
The expedition to Ojos del Salado in South America saw the explorers attempt to peak of 6893 meters in the harshest of conditions. The weather window closed and they were unable to ascend to the peak.
“While we cannot control the force of nature and extreme weather, the difference lies in that we, as a nation, can control the outcome of early child education and enable our children to reach their full potential.” said team leader and Chairman of The Unlimited Child, Iain Buchan.
The Unlimited Child is a hugely impactful preschool programme that currently affects over 200 000 children in 1 300 preschools across 7 provinces.
A programme that would no doubt resonate with our president. “We know that if we are to break the cycle of poverty, we need to educate the children of the poor. We have insisted that this should start in early childhood.” President Cyril Ramaphosa, SONA address.
We, as South Africans, have the choice to support or walk away from the future potential of children in this country. The Unlimited Child, makes it easy for you to help our preschool children summit.
