Expedition now also supports early childhood development
ONE thing about South Africans is that they are a creative bunch of guys and girls.
This is illustrated by the latest addition to the package of humanitarian activities making up the the Kingsley Holgate Foundation’s expeditions.
Those who have been involved with these activities will be aware of the Mashozi Rite to Sight spectacles, the malaria nets, drinking straws, the Rhino Art programme and the soccer games promoting rhino conservation.
Ian Gourley of Barrows, who produce retail advertising material, has added Early Childhood Development (ECD) to this arsenal of humanitarian aid.
Gourley says that by implementing ‘excess business harvesting’ he is making puzzles and games for preschoolers to develop ECD programmes in schools.
Ninety percent of a human’s neurological pathways are developed between 0 and 6 years of age.
With this early development of preschoolers not being adequately addressed by the Department of Education, it is hoped that the new generation will develop leaders who will better address the issues facing South Africa.
Barrows are placing ECD centres in the primary schools being visited by the Kingsley Holgate Foundation, thus adding to the expedition’s sense of purpose.
