A child without education, is like a bird with out wings. – Tibetan proverb.
The quote above is really significant to our current situation at Jacoba Academy. Jacoba Academy offers a safe environment where learners of all ages can come and get assistance with homework or have fun on the sports field playing soccer making new friends. In short Jacoba Academy uses football as its engine to drive social development either in the classroom or on the sports field.
It is extremely sad that we have not been able to get our education center back up and running since last year June, this is due to us not having a proper facility to utilize and generate the education center out of. We were at Paterson Park recreation center but that is currently under construction and not safe for our learners to be educated around the site, so until we can go back to the center we are not working on helping the learners improve in their education levels which is not good for developing the learners full capability.
We are asking anyone who has a small room, or classroom we can use in the afternoons. This has to be in walking distance from Yoville, Berea and Hillbrow as we cater for most of these learners. Please this would be a massive contribution but you would be helping us drive social development and improvement with in our community. Please help in sharing this and getting the word as far as possible.
